Small and Medium Enterprises
Custodiamo le Imprese
The extraordinary aid measure allows micro, small and medium-sized enterprises with operational headquarters in Puglia, forced to close by decree in 2021, to receive a direct grant that compensates for the lower revenues achieved during the pandemic. The measure is available to companies that have not obtained other specific aid from Puglia Region, including those provided for by Micro-loan (2020 and 2021 editions) and Working Capital loan (Title II Chapter 3 and Chapter 6) from the measures Guardiamo il Turismo in Puglia 2.0 and Custodiamo la Cultura in Puglia 2.0. The company revenues in the period 07/01/2020 – 06/30/2021 must have not exceeded 70% of the revenues in the period 07/01/2019 – 06/30/2020, which means that the revenue decrease year over year must have been at least 30%. The subsidy consists of a compensation (non-repayable) that can reach up to € 25,000.00.
The application must be submitted through the custodiamoleimprese.regione.puglia.it portal from 01/13/2022, when the notice was published in the Official Bulletin of Puglia Region, until 02/28/2022 at 4 p.m. The measure is linked to the temporary framework of aid granted by the European Union for Covid-19 health emergency.
