Agri-Climate Rural Environment Scheme (ACRES) Extension of Closing Date for Applications

The Agri-Climate Rural Environment Scheme (ACRES) opened for applications on October 17th 2022 and closed on the 7th of December 2022. Over 46,000 applications were submitted and earlier this month (March 2023), the Department of Agrculture, Food and Marine issued approval letters to all valid applications, which is exceptionally good news for all farmers. These letters stated the environmental actions that must be completed on each individual farm as contracts commenced on the 1st of January 2023. If you are a participant and want to seek further advice on ACRES or are interested in ACRES 2 (expected to launch in Autumn 2023), please contact an ACA member.
