Projects funding

The projects will be measured according to the criteria defined by each GAC for its territory in its Strategic Plan Zonal (ETS) which is found under each of the group pages.

The level of funding of projects will depend on the projects guided to:

  • Non-productive investments: in this case may reach to 100% of the Project eligible costs.
  • Productive investments: in this case may reach to 60% of the Project eligible costs.
