Will preparation costs be reimbursed?


Approved projects which signed the subsidy contract with the managing authority can receive a lump-sum reimbursing their preparation and contracting costs according to the following principles:

  • The lump sum amounts to EUR 15.000 of total eligible expenditure per project
  • The lump sum covers all costs linked to the preparation and/or contracting of the project until the day on which the final application form fulfilling all conditions for approval set by the MC has been finally accepted by the MA/JS

The ERDF contribution effectively granted to the project is linked to the actual co-financing rate applicable to the partner(s) to whom the lump sum is allocated in accordance to the approved application form. In order to apply for the reimbursement of preparation costs, the preparation costs budget must be indicated in the application form, giving information on the amount allocated to the concerned project partner(s).
