Updated: Guidelines and budget guidelines for the Municipal Partnership programme
The guidelines for the Municipal Partnership programme, as well as its budget guidelines, have been updated and have undergone some changes and improvements after dialogue with active municipalities.
Among the news is a new allowance for local travel in partner countries. In addition, compensation for facilities and conference costs is now allowed in the form of, for example, lesser compensation for renting venues for meetings and workshops.
Costs for visas are covered as before, but now it is also possible to get compensation for the surrounding costs that may arise connected to the application process. Costs for environmental compensation for travel is now possible to include in budgets.
Regarding partner countries, it is no longer possible to apply for partnerships with Belarus and India.
