To date, over 96% of eligible GLAS participants have received their 2018 advance payment. A number of cases remain ineligible for payment as the GLAS participant and/or their Advisor need to complete a certain action or actions. I would encourage any GLAS applicant with outstanding obligations, such as the submission of a Nutrient Management Plan, GLAS Training or finalisation of a Commonage Management Plan to speak to their Advisor and ensure that this work is completed as a priority. Without the submission of all the required information, these applicants will remain ineligible for further GLAS payments.

Payment runs will continue each week to clear the completed cases. As of today, the payment rates so far are:
