Kosovo municipalities can now apply for grants for energy efficiency in social housing.
We are pleased to announce before the mayors of the municipalities, in the presence of the Prime Minister Mr. Kurti, ministers Mrs. Rizvanolli, Mr. Murat, Mr. Krasniqi and representatives of the EU office in Kosovo Mr. Bianchiardi, that MD KEEF Mr. Ismaili presented the EE measures for the implementation of the Emergency Project. This project aims to improve energy saving and increase the well-being of citizens in multi-residential social buildings owned by municipalities in Kosovo.
This project is part of the Emergency Package for Energy, financed by the EU within the framework of the IPA program, arranged by GRK, which has also approved the Action Plan, which, according to measure 3, delegates the responsibility for its implementation to KEEF .
The measures for multi-residential buildings (social housing) will be implemented in cooperation with the Municipalities of the Republic of Kosovo, through the co-financing model, with which KEEF will contribute with 90% of the investment (non-refundable funds), while the Municipalities will contribute with only 10% of the investment value. This is the first time that a local institution implements such measures in the residential sector in Kosovo.
On this occasion, in the meeting organized for this purpose, the Public Call for Applications from the Municipalities of the Republic of Kosovo was officially opened.
We thank the EU and GRK for the realization of this project, while we welcome the cooperation of the municipalities in the realization of the project for the achievement of common objectives at the country level.
All interested municipalities are invited to submit their applications, according to the Public Call presented in the link below, which will be open until April 17, 2023.
