The funding is intended to provide an incentive for investments in technical standards, comfort and the quality of ropeways and thus ensure the sustainable safeguarding of the stock of Bavarian ropeway installations.
Commercial investments in the technical renewal and modernization of existing ropeways, including ancillary facilities required for operation in small ski resorts, are eligible for funding. If additional, directly related services are offered that are equally important for skiing or summer use, these investments are also supported.
Grants are awarded to commercial and municipal enterprises.
Eligible costs include the acquisition or production of capitalized tangible assets that are part of the investment project and, under certain conditions, the acquisition of intangible, leased, rented or leased assets.
Type and amount
The subsidy can be granted as an investment grant or as an interest subsidy to reduce the cost of a loan to be granted by the LfA Förderbank. The subsidy rate is up to 35% for small enterprises, 25% for medium-sized enterprises and up to 35% for exclusively municipally owned enterprises.
