On 30 November 2020, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has published a policy paper, Multi annual financial assistance plan for the plan period 2021 to 2027. The report sets out how it will plan to meet the requirements of section 4 (which deals with multi annual financial assistance plans) of the Agricultural Act 2020 (AGA 2020).

The policy paper highlights the plan period between 2021 to 2027 and sets out the government's objectives and strategies for providing financial assistance under section 4 of AGA 2020. The paper also provides a list of schemes which will be available during the plan period coupled with an Agricultural Transition Plan (for the Agriculture plan in England for the period 2021 to 2024), which provides further details of the policies.
