About the Social Entrepreneurship Programme
In the first half of 2017, grant financing for enterprises conducting social entrepreneurship will be available to promote establishment and development of social enterprises.
The project is implemented by the Ministry of Welfare, involving ALTUM as a Cooperation Partner to administer the grant scheme.
Requirements for the grant scheme will be developed in the first quarter of 2017 and ALTUM will start issuing grants in the first half of 2017.
Merchants, associations and foundations that are already social enterprises, as well as private individuals planning to start social entrepreneurship, are the target group for the aid.
Business plans submitted by those starting social entrepreneurship will be assessed.
The aim of the project is to promote the environment and development of social entrepreneurship and increase the opportunities for employment for those unemployed who are in less favourable conditions, persons with a disability and persons with mental disabilities.
It is planned that 200 social enterprises and social entrepreneurship start-ups will be supported within the framework of the programme. The programme will operate until 2022.
The programme financing will be provided as de minimis aid in line with the Commission Regulation (EU) No. 1407/2013 of 18 December 2013, the Commission Regulation (EU) No. 717/2014 of 27 June 2014 and the Commission Regulation (EU) No. 1408/2013 of 18 December 2013.
