Farm Improvement Scheme

Objective:
Farm Improvement Scheme (FIS) is set up under SADF to provide direct grants to local farmers for acquisition of farming equipment and materials for helping farmers improve their farming efficiency and productivity.

Eligibility:
- An applicant must be a resident or a registered company/organisation of Hong Kong and operate a crop farm engaged in commercial production of not less than 1 dau chung (d.c.) or a licensed livestock farm in Hong Kong.

- To prevent double benefit, applications should be made on a one grant per farm basis; a successful applicant, as well as his/her spouse, is not eligible for further grant under FIS even if he/she and his/her spouse own(s) more than one farm, or subsequently acquire(s), rent(s) or relocate(s) to a different farm.

- An applicant would need to provide proofs to certify that his/her farm is an operating farm for commercial production. Please refer to Annex 2 to the Application Guideline attached in the website below for the acceptable proofs.

- Only equipment and materials shortlisted by the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department for FIS and put to use in the applicant’s farm are eligible for application for grant. Please refer to Annex 2 to the Application Guideline for the list of farm equipment and materials.
 
Amount of Grant:
The grant will be issued on a reimbursement basis and will cover up to 80% of the cost of each piece of eligible equipment and materials purchased, i.e. the successful applicant is required to bear at least 20% of the cost. The total maximum grant that an applicant may receive is capped at $30,000, irrespective of the number of items sought.
