Two calls for applications of the Slovenian Regional Development Fund published

Slovenian Regional Development Fund has published two calls on its website (BIZI liquidity floods and BIZI liquidity energy). The two financial products target micro enterprises and SMEs and are designed to support flood recovery projects in the aftermath of the devastating floods in early August 2023 and/or projects aiming to reduce energy consumption amid energy crisis and price increases.

The two calls for applications make a total of 20 million euros in loans available, of which 10 million euros are dedicated for post-flood recovery projects and 10 million euros for energy projects. 

The amount of the loan that can be received varies between 80,000 euros and 500,000 euros.   

The aim of the calls for applications is to secure liquidity of economic entities that were hit by the devastating floods and energy crisis (improving liquidity, increasing competitiveness and productivity, investing in the areas of environmental protection and resource efficiency, energy efficiency, and post-flood production recovery).

Entities that may apply include entities identified in the Companies Act (legal entity: unlimited company, limited partnership, limited liability company, public limited company, limited partnership with share capital, European public limited-liability company; individual performing gainful activity; entity identified in the Cooperatives Act and registered as cooperative). 

Eligible costs include equipment and plant and other tangible assets, intangible assets, and operational costs.

The calls are designed to help eligible entities bounce back after they were heavily impacted by the floods and/or energy crisis through the recovery of their economic potential, the improvement of liquidity, the improvement of competitiveness, and the implementation of measures to manage energy consumption or energy losses.

Online applications can be submitted via eRsklad application form. The call is open to all eligible entities.  

The call will close between 30 October and 8 December 2023.  

More information about both calls (in Slovene language) is available on the website of the Slovenian Regional Development Fund:
