The call for applications for co-financing roads leading to border crossings from the European Regional Development Fund as part of the Interreg Poland-Slovakia 2021-2027 programme has been launched. There are over EUR 14m to give away.

The call for applications for road projects has started, including roads located within the 30-kilometre state border zone and leading directly to, or connecting with public roads leading to one of the border crossings between Poland and Slovakia. There are EUR 14,044,018 to be distributed from the European Regional Development Fund as part of the Interreg Poland-Slovakia 2021-2027 programme, covering Priority 2 “A Better Connected Borderland”.

“Support is given to measures aimed at improving the accessibility for public transport and road traffic safety. The road infrastructure components being built should enhance the functionality, safety and flow of traffic and contribute to improving the condition of the natural environment,” as was noted in the call announcement.

Local government entities from borderland areas may apply for funding. In Śląskie Voivodeship, these are: Bielski subregion and Pszczyński District from the Tyski subregion; in Małopolskie Voivodeship: Oświecimski, Nowosądecki, Nowotarski Subregions, and Myślenicki District from the Krakowski Subregion; in Podkarpackie Voivodeship: Krośnieński and Przemyski Subregions, City of Rzeszów, and Rzeszowski District from the Rzeszowski Subregion.

The maximum level of co-financing from ERDF is 80 percent of eligible costs. The funding may be awarded in the amount of between EUR 500,000 and EUR 4m.

Applications, to be completed in Polish and Slovakian, may be filed only in electronic form by 31 October. The programme is subject to the partnership principle, which means that at least one partner from Poland and at least one partner from Slovakia must take part.
