The 2011 Less Favoured Area Support Scheme runs from 1 January to 31 December 2011. The Scottish Government plans to start issuing the related payments from January 2012. Payments will be processed after all necessary eligibility checks have been completed and, given the example of most recent years, it is expected payments will be effectively complete by February 2012.
