    Agency for Rural Affairs


    ​We are responsible for the use of agricultural aid and rural development funds of the European Union in Finland. We operate as the EU paying agency administering EU and domestic subsidies.
    ​The subsidy mechanisms administered by us encourage rural entrepreneurs to diversify their operations and to develop their rural businesses. The aim of the farmers’ aid payments is to safeguard the profitability and continuity of agricultural production.
    ​We make sure that our clients receive farmers' support payments, rural funding and development as well as market support payments in a timely and accurate manner.
    ​We guide, advise and train partners serving our customers: Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centres), municipalities’ co-operation areas, and local function groups.
