The young farmers' installation scheme was suspended for new applications on 14 October 2008. An allocation of €4.5 million has been provided in this year's Estimates to meet the financial commitment involved in processing applications received under the scheme prior to its suspension and the preceding installation aid schemes. Expenditure under the scheme is still eligible for co-funding by the EU.
