26 Jun €2.7 million to promote projects by companies, families and associations in the sparsely populated rural areas of Aragon
Today the Official Gazette of Aragon publishes the call for proposals to the Aragon Territorial Cohesion Fund, which will provide 100% funding for development projects promoted by families, companies and non-profit organisations in the 636 most depopulated municipalities of Aragon.
For businesses there is a funding line for current expenditure with up to €5,000 of aid per application for the creation of social economy companies and to encourage the hiring of young people who have finished their university or vocational training studies. Another four lines dedicated to investment, with up to €20,000 of aid, are aimed at sectors capable of creating new economic opportunities based on endogenous resources with the aim of settling population. Aid is also provided for social and complementary services at home, the processing and marketing of agro-ecological products and artisan foods, to strengthen local forestry with the processing and diversification of forest products and, finally, to promote the creation of mobile services that do not jeopardize existing local services.
For non-profit organisations and families, the current expenditure of training plans specially designed to promote female self-employment and business productivity is financed. Another line is to provide support to the creation and promotion of activities by local cultural and sports associations, developing quality events that increase people’s self-esteem and support the professional cultural sector. Both lines can grant up to a maximum of €10,000 per applicant.
There are two other lines: one to help social entities to reinforce adapted social transport, with a maximum of €20,000 of aid, and another specific line for individuals, which allows investments of up to €10,000 in single-family homes in villages to adapt them to the elderly and dependent people’s main residences.
Deadline: July 16th, 2020.
