EU funds – the 3rd round of The Rural Development Programme
In the same way as in the autumn last year, the reception of the requests in some measures of The Rural Development Programme takes place this year. The 3rd round of the programme takes place from the 11th of October 2016 (8:00) to the 31st of October 2016 (13:00). The support of the whole sum of 4.5 billion CZK is geared for investments into agricultural, food and forestry companies, for innovations and cooperating projects.
The biggest part of money is for operation 4.1.1. Investment into agricultural companies (2.5 billion CZK) and 4.2.1. Processing and putting agricultural products on the market (756 million CZK). It is possible to win this support not only for the property and technology in animal or vegetable production and for processing agricultural products, but for one’s own pellet production or for special machines for agriculture production, including tractors in the cases of small projects. The maximum amount of support is between 40 and 60 % of the total eligible costs.
There have been some changes in comparison with last round, the most important one is the equivalent construction permission, which has to be valid on the submission day of the dotation’s request. The administrative periods were limited – for submitting an annex to the tenders (70 days from the end of submitting the request), but especially for approving the projects, which should finish in 7 months from the end of submitting the request, compared to 11 months in the first round.
