Deadlines have been extended for submitting applications for the benefit of economic operators who carry out their work in Zea, the Environmental Economic Zones, or areas that coincide with the territories of national parks, established by the climate law at the end of 2019.
Forty million euros in extraordinary grants earmarked nationwide for micro and small businesses, park guides that have an operational headquarters within a Zea or operate in a marine protected area and have suffered a reduction in turnover.
The extraordinary subsidy can be combined, within the ceiling of the loss incurred, with allowances and facilities, including financial ones, issued nationwide to cope with the economic-financial crisis caused by the Covid-19 health emergency, including allowances provided by Inps.
The philosophy of the intervention is aimed at enhancing the protected area system. Zeas have also been supported by the Stability Law, through incentives for returnable packaging, community composting, and timely metering of waste delivered to the public service.
The call is aimed at micro and small businesses, park guiding activities that suffered a reduction in turnover in the 2020 season. The philosophy is to encourage people to live, work and invest in parks, making environmental protection coexist with economic development.
The application must be filled out electronically by accessing through the credentials provided by the Revenue Agency to the portal https://www.contributozea.it that can be reached from the Ministry of the Environment website and relaunched from the Asinara National Park website. Applications can be submitted until April 14, following the instructions for completion, and then beneficiaries will be met within sixty days.
