EU Allocates BAM 2 Million in Support of Primary Agricultural Production

On Tuesday, 19 September, the EU-funded EU4AGRI project launched a Public Call to support investments in primary agricultural production. Under this Public Call, BAM 2 million is available, with grant amount per application ranging from BAM 20,000 to BAM 200,000 (without VAT). The applicant must ensure own co-financing for any single project in the amount of a minimum of 30% of the total amount of eligible costs of the proposed investment, for all acceptable sectors. Therefore, the co-financing structure is 70% EU4AGRI – 30% applicant. Eligible applicants for grants under this support measure are crafts/independent entrepreneurs, cooperatives and companies.


Eligible applicants


Under this Public Call, the European Union supports agricultural households that contribute to stabilising/strengthening production competitiveness and increasing the level of productivity of primary agricultural production through modernisation and the introduction of new technologies and innovations, improving product quality, hygiene and food safety, promoting good business practices and sustainable development through improvements in natural resource management, environmental protection, worker protection and food safety, and contribute to mitigating the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.


All projects related exclusively to agricultural sectors are eligible for investment support in primary agricultural production, such as the production of milk, meat, the cultivation of cereals and oilseeds, the cultivation of fruit, including viticulture and olives, cultivation of vegetables, the production of planting material (fruit seedlings, vegetable seedlings and seed potatoes), egg production, fish farming, growing herbs, medicinal plants, and mushrooms, as well as honey production.


The Call is open for applications from 05 October 2023, and the deadline is 20 November 2023, by 15:00.
