The City Council is preparing the bases that will govern the aid
Benidorm City Council is going to launch a new aid package for SMEs and the self-employed, in this case through a subsidy of 647,278 euros from the Provincial Council of Alicante which "aims to compensate companies and entrepreneurs for the effects that the crisis caused by the war in Ukraine has had on economic activity.”
This was announced today by the Councilor for Employment and Local Promotion, Mónica Gómez, who reported that "the bases that will govern this call for aid are already being prepared, which will set, among other issues, the maximum amounts to which can be opted, the eligible expenses and the requirements that the beneficiary SMEs and self-employed workers must meet.”
Gómez recalled that “the support of Benidorm City Council for the local productive fabric has been constant in the last three years in which the economy has been severely shaken first by the pandemic and later by the exorbitant increase in the price of energy and of the Ukrainian war.
“Since March 2020 – she-she pointed out – the City Council has mobilized more than 20 million euros to, in successive calls, help companies, self-employed workers, SMEs, and micro-SMEs from all economic sectors in the city; a direct economic injection to which are added the municipal rates and public prices that have been subsidized or stopped being collected.”
The councilor added that "during this time, financial support has also been received from the Provincial Council, which has made it possible to increase the resources made available to the local productive fabric to contribute to recovery."
