The national contribution has to be provided by the partner organisations themselves. It is up to these organisations to find this contribution. In some countries, there may be provisions to fund fully or partly the national co-financing required. This information should be checked at national level through the national points of contact.
Private non-profit bodies are eligible under Interreg Europe with a co-financing rate of 75%.
At the application stage, only the co-financing should be secured by each participating partner.
At the end of phase 1 of the project, an action plan for each region should be produced and the funding sources to implement each action, if needed, should be identified.
The amount stated in the partner declaration should at least cover the amount of the partner contribution (15%, 25% or 50% of the partner’s budget depending on the legal status and location of the partner) or the total amount in case the partner is not applying for Interreg Europe co-financing.
To illustrate with an example: a public authority’s total budget is €150,000. The programme’s co-financing would be €127,500 (ERDF: 85% of the total budget) and the partner contribution would be €22,500 (partner contribution: 15% of the total budget for a public authority or a body governed by public law). This partner would have to indicate at least €22,500 in the partner declaration.
The amount has to be at least the same as in the application form. Please note that all figures in the budget section of the application are rounded up to the nearest Euro.
Please see also sections 4.4 Partnership, 5.2. Submission (point B. Partner declaration) and 5.3.1 Eligibility assessment in the programme manual for more details.
In the online application system iOLF you will have to submit partner declarations, which commit each partner to a specific co-funding. In the past, many errors occurred with regards to the amount of co-funding, stated in the document. Therefore, the template no longer mentions the amount but refers to the relevant section of the application form instead.
