The deadline for applications under the LIFE LOGOS 4 WATERS Municipal Support Programme was 30 June 2022. The Municipal Support Programme invited innovative, novel ideas to promote climate change adaptation and water retention through local, small-scale municipal projects. Municipalities were invited to submit their own ideas, which will be funded up to the budget available. A winning municipality can receive a minimum of HUF 700 000 grant and a maximum of HUF 3 500 000 grant. This represents around 15 successful applications.
The promotional video of the call is available in the Video Gallery (only in Hungarian).
86 applications were received by the deadline, and the Association of Climate Friendly Municipalities has already started the formal evaluation process. The applications received show that this type of more flexible funding, even if small in amount, is a great opportunity for municipalities large and small. Among the applications received, 8 metropolitan cities and 8 cities with county status, as well as a number of small municipalities, submitted applications.
The partners involved in the LIFE LOGOS 4 WATERS project will also be involved in the evaluation of the technical content. The winning municipalities will be notified in August 2022, following a detailed review of the applications received.
