The Agriculture Ministry has doubled the available funding to 2.4 billion forints in its latest tender for grants for smallholders, deputy state secretary József Viski said. The ministry called the tender in December, initially with a funding framework of 1.2 billion forints. The deadline for submitting applications for the funding is February 11, 2019. The tender was the eighth such one called since 2011. Smallholders were awarded almost 9 billion forints in the earlier tenders.
