Purpose and object
With the funding, the state grants a subsidy for new and exemplary projects in inter-municipal cooperation (on the basis of the forms provided for under the Law on Municipal Cooperation, Art. 54 et seq. Bavarian Administrative Procedure Act and Articles 2 and 3 of the Act on the Implementation of the Personal Status Act). Together, numerous municipal tasks can be performed better, faster, more effectively, in greater variety and more economically, so that not only the municipalities benefit through synergy effects, but also the citizens through an improved range of services.
Recipients of funding
All Bavarian local authorities and their associations in the legal form of a legal entity under public law, as well as the companies and institutions they manage, are eligible to apply.
Type and amount
The grant is awarded by way of project funding in the form of fixed-amount financing. As a standard grant for the implementation of a corresponding cooperation project, an allocation of 50,000 euros is granted, but not more than 85% of the eligible expenses incurred in compliance with the principle of economic efficiency.
An increased allocation of up to 90,000 euros can be granted to cooperation projects in sub-areas with a special need for action in accordance with the state development program.
Contact persons are available at each government for questions about inter-municipal cooperation and its funding opportunities.
