The Croatian government on Thursday "endorsed a decision on the distribution" of 25 million kuna (€3.3 million) in aid for projects "important for the Croat people in Bosnia and Herzegovina" in 2021, state agency Hina reported.
The state secretary of the central office for Croats abroad, Zvonko Milas, informed the Plenkovic cabinet about the distribution of the funds, Hina said.
An inter-departmental task force for the coordination of financial support for cultural, educational, scientific, healthcare and other programs in the interest of Bosnian Croats in 2021, thus decided that 25 million kuna would be distributed to cover 79 programs and projects this year, Hina said.
These include funding a healthcare center in the town of Kiseljak, a center for children with disabilities in Grude, the construction of a sports hall in Kupres, the reconstruction of a library in Kaonik, the project of construction of a water supply network in Domaljevac, the reconstruction of a town hall in Odzak, the reconstruction of a culture center in Stolac, and the film festival “Ivo Gregurovic” in Orasje.
This year’s allocation of the Bosnian Croats’ programmes is 3.5 million kuna (€467,000) higher than last year, Hina noted.
