Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department

  1. Farmers

    1. Generally, only genuine small full-time farmers should be considered and large-scale farmers or high income farmers will not be eligible except in unusual circumstances of extreme hardship.

    2. Applicants at least half of whose income does not come from farming should be rejected.

    3. If less than one-third of the whole farm is damaged, no grant should be given unless there are exceptional circumstances.

    4. For mixed farms, farmers are allowed to claim grants under the appropriate enterprises but subject to one applicable maximum whichever is the highest.

    5. If a farmer has received or will receive a grant as a result of a previous natural disaster which happened less than 7 days ago and no significant new damage occured in the farm, no grant should be given except in unusual circumstances of extreme hardship.
