National support schemes

National support for agriculture, food sector, fisheries and rural development is state aid provided from the state budget of Lithuania to agriculture, food sector, fisheries and rural development, de minimis aid and/or other support granted for the activities specified in the rules for the implementation of measures.
In 2017, Lithuanian farmers received national support of the transition period twice. During the year, farmers received pay-outs for 2016 (payments were made in February) and for 2017 (payments were made in September, November and December). Lithuanian farmers were paid a total of about EUR 46 million from the state budget.
In 2017, NPA administered 44 national support measures. The most support (excluding national support of the transition period), namely EUR 15.1 million, was disbursed under the Biofuel Production Development Programme. This programme is aimed at creating opportunities to use agricultural produce for non-food purposes, to reduce dependence on imported fuel and greenhouse gas emissions.
