Dairy Farm Investment Program – 3. Before you apply
As of 3 p.m. EDT August 29, 2017, the Dairy Farm Investment Program’s first application window is fully subscribed. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada is therefore no longer accepting applications for small projects ending before March 31, 2019, and large projects ending before March 31, 2020.
All applications received prior to this time will be reviewed according to the first-come-first-served principle until funding is fully committed. A waiting list will then be created should funds become available due to cancelled or rejected investment projects reviewed during this first window for applications.
Dairy producers will be notified in the coming months of the next window to apply for funding for subsequent years of the five-year (2017 - 2022) program.
3. Before you apply
Please read the Applicant Guide for detailed information on eligibility criteria, project types, funding available and the application process. You may also wish to review our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
Complete application packages are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. It is highly recommended the application be submitted well in advance of proposed activities to allow time for the application to be considered.
Small Investment Projects will be assessed using a fast-track process.
Other considerations for applicants:
- based on the demand, the program will strive to support investments in all provinces – approximately in proportion to their share of the total milk quota
- the program will aim to achieve a fair balance of funding distribution between small and large investment projects
- first-time applicants may be prioritized
