MUNICIPALITIES WITH FACILITATED ACCESS TO EUROPEAN FINANCING FROM OPE

Municipalities which are OPE beneficiaries will implement their projects under facilitated administrative procedures, said Deputy Minister of Environment and Water Ivelina Vasileva at the Seventh Meeting of Local Authorities in Albena Resort Complex.
Current implementation of OP Environment projects and opportunities for award of grants in the Water and Waste sectors were presented at the forum. Malina Krumova, Head of OPE Managing Authority, presented the strategic documents, the open application procedures, the activities eligible for financing and the actions taken in support of potential beneficiaries. The directors of the Water and Waste Management Directorates of MOEW took part in the forum. They explained the implementation of the legislation in the two sectors. At a discussion during the conclusive part of the forum, municipal representatives had an opportunity to put forward various issues.
The Managing Authority of the Programme is in continuous dialogue with municipalities and will continue to work towards facilitating and accelerating the procedures for preparation of project proposals and for their subsequent implementation.
