Call for proposals to support agricultural investments in Turkish Cypriot community

The European Commission has launched a EUR 5 million call for proposals to support agricultural investments in the Turkish Cypriot community.

It will target farmers, irrigation unions and agricultural cooperatives.

Selected projects will be supported with EU grants from a minimum amount of EUR 35,000 to maximum amounts of EUR 110,000 for individual farmers and EUR 150,000 for irrigation unions and cooperatives.

The Guidelines for Applicants and application package are available at the following link:
