EU supports improvement of local infrastructure with 3.4 million Euros

The European Union (EU) for local development programme, EU PRO Plus, which is implemented in cooperation with the Ministry of European Integration, has announced a Public Call for local infrastructure projects for which the EU has allocated 3.4 million Euros. The call is open by 31 January 2022, while 99 local self-governments from the two regions of Šumadija and Western Serbia and Southern and Eastern Serbia, involved in the programme implementation, are eligible to apply.

The local self-governments should submit the projects that contribute to a better quality of life through the improvement of public infrastructure facilities, including the renovation and construction of educational, health and social care institutions, sports and cultural facilities, communal infrastructure, and public administration buildings. When selecting projects, special focus will be on improving the living conditions of members of vulnerable groups, as well as to Covid 19 recovery.

The individual project may be awarded from 42,000 to 170,000 Euros, while municipalities should ensure co-financing in the amount of at least 15 percent of the total project value. In order to improve the sustainability of the project, local self-governments can apply independently, or in partnership with other local self-governments, public companies and institutions, as well as with civil society organisations and regional development agencies.

The Call envisages support for the construction or reconstruction of public buildings, which should contribute to their functionality, as well as to improving the energy efficiency of public buildings, their accessibility, improvement and protection of the environment and urban mobility.

More information on this Call as well as the application documentation is available on the page Public Call for Local Infrastructure Projects on the EU PRO Plus website while the info sessions will be held according to the following schedule:
