Cost category No. 4.
Under the terms of Part III.2.2 of the Programme Guide, Partners are required to submit Annex 4, in which they will have to declare their financial capacity, confirming that co-financing will be available (the municipality will have to transfer to you the funds needed for co-financing).
The programme does not foresee a specific percentage distribution, but you need to assess what the objectives of the selected project priority are and how the planned investments will be justified in the application in the context of LT-PL cooperation.
Please not that even as there is no maximum ceiling for investment component, stand-alone infrastructure will not be supported.
Preparation cost fixed amount of 2250 euro (1800 euro ERDF) is for all partners jointly, i.e. you will not need to submit supporting documents to get it, but if the project is selected you will need to provide evidence that the application was jointly prepared with the partners (e.g. photos of the meeting, minutes). This amount is intended to cover the overall costs of preparing the application (e.g. organisation of the partners’ meeting, travel costs).
Concrete limitation is not set, however project budget should be consistent with the general project logics and project activities. Please note, that the Programme is dedicated to cross border cooperation, thus this element is crucial for project development.
Administrative costs can be planned in the budget cost category 2 „Office and administrative costs“. List of eligible costs for this cost category is indicated in the part II.4.3., point 2 of the Programme Manual.
Project partners are responsible for their own budgets, which are necessary to perform activities in order to achieve project objectives.
The Programme does not impose restrictions, but you need to assess what the objectives of each Programme priority are and how the planned investments will be justified in the application in the context of LT-PL cooperation.
Please not that even as there is no maximum ceiling for investment component, stand-alone infrastructure will not be supported. Regarding Priority 3, it focuses on soft cooperation activities and people-to-people actions, and only small-scale investments are possible.
Lump sum of fixed amount of EUR 2.250,00 (EUR 1.800,00 ERDF) for preparation costs is meant to cover costs incurred by all Project Partners in relation to the preparation of the AF before the project’s start: preparation costs of travel, accommodation (if necessary), per diems and meals during partner meetings and preparation costs for translation (during partner meetings) and organization of the events (partners meetings). Reimbursement to the Lead Partner will be done with the first Project Report submitted along with proof of delivery of the activities covered by the lump sum (meeting agenda, participant list, etc.).
