EU financial assistance available to local and regional authorities in the candidate and potential candidate countries for EU enlargement
The projects aims to identify which EU funds and programmes the sub-national authorities from the enlargement countries have access to, keeping in mind that possibilities for cooperation vary by country.
CASE experts will prepare a note which will describe the general features of funds in place at the EU and national level and will suggest easiest ways of accessing these for the local and regional authorities in enlargement countries. It will take the CoR study of 2014 and 2018 as a basis and comprehensively update its content taking into account financial resources available within the Instrument for Pre-Accession (IPA-III) for the current financial period (2021-2027). Additionally to the study of 2018, this note should cover COVID-related financial assistance for economic recovery. The note will be published in the form of a brochure to be used as a guide for local and regional authorities in the enlargement countries.
