The budget committee of the German Bundestag has decided to support municipal projects totaling around 200 million euros.

105 selected municipalities can now apply for funding as part of the federal program “Renovation of municipal facilities in the areas of sport, youth and culture”, announced the Ministry of the Interior on Wednesday. Funds for the federal program were increased as part of the Corona economic stimulus package.

“The federal program is again helping cities and municipalities to renovate their municipal facilities. The local citizens in particular benefit from this, ”said Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU). The funds from the Corona stimulus package must be used as soon as possible. A total of 600 million euros are available for the federal program from the economic stimulus package. The remaining 400 million euros are earmarked for the current funding call. Cities and municipalities can submit an expression of interest to Project Management Jülich until October 30, 2020, it said.
