The funds paid represent 90.24% of the approved amount of state aid for all applicants.
The rest will be paid to all 12,131 farmers in a second tranche in the beginning of 2022. Farmers, who have a valid application for support under the Single Area Payment Scheme (SAPS) and the coupled support schemes for animals for the year preceding the year of application for state aid, are eligible for support.
