The Regional Culture Support Program is intended to promote initiatives in the field of homeland preservation throughout Bavaria and to strengthen the awareness of homeland and tradition.
The following are eligible for funding
a) Investments in the construction (new building, conversion, extension or renovation) and technical installations in venues (event and rehearsal rooms or open-air stages) for historical local history plays; the acquisition including conversion or repair of a building is also supported, insofar as this makes a new building or extension necessary for the venue of a historical local history play superfluous (investment support);
b) innovative individual events and projects in which the purpose of preserving local history is paramount (individual funding).
Recipients of grants
Natural persons and legal entities with residence, habitual abode or registered office in Bavaria are eligible to apply for and receive funding. It is a prerequisite that the applicants do not primarily pursue commercial interests with the project.
Type and amount
There is no legal entitlement to funding. Funding is provided in the form of grants in accordance with the budgetary resources available. The funding rate is up to 30% of the eligible expenses, unless the outstanding importance justifies a higher funding rate in individual cases due to a special state interest.
