EUR 120mn from EU funds for six small war-affected towns in Croatia

Beli Manastir, Benkovac, Darda, Knin, Petrinja and Vukovar will take part in a EUR 120 million programme for the integrated regeneration of small towns affected by the 1991-1995 war.

The programme was formally presented in Knin on Thursday.

The funds of this programme will be used to reduce social inequality, social exclusion and poverty and to improve local infrastructure, ensure the active participation of local residents in the local economy and make these towns more attractive for living, said the Minister of Regional Development and European Union Funds, Tomislav Tolusic.

The value of the project is 120 million euros, of which 100 million will be co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and 20 million by the European Social Fund. The project will last until January 2017.
