She noted that this money will be supplemented with more funds under the so-called Program Contract to be negotiated between the marshal and the minister for regional development. The pool for all regions is around EUR 7 billion.

Świętokrzyskie will also be a participant in the Eastern Poland program. Within it, EUR 2.5 billion will be allocated to six voivodeships.

The deputy minister emphasized that social projects would continue to be supported under the new EU perspective. The funds will be allocated to improving the qualifications of employees, assisting the elderly and the disabled.
