Since 1 June 2016, municipalities that invest in budget saving projects and in projects which increase their revenue through projects funded by the European Union Structural Funds, may receive grants from the state budget to secure its own contribution. To this end, they may submit applications to the Public Investment Development Agency (VIPA), which administers grants.
VIPA is currently developing a repayable assistance model for financing renovation of central government buildings. In general repayable assistance should be applied where the market fails – where the interest of private investors (ESCO’s) in renovation is low. This might be the case with renovation of cultural heritage buildings or buildings with specific security restrictions that require more funds than usually.
