Further contributions to the acquisition of personal protective equipment come from the Veneto authorities. Specifically, this time it is Unioncamere Veneto that is launching a call for contributions for the purchase of PPE and prevention tools following the Covid-19 outbreak.


Grant level and eligible entities

The call in question has a budget of 3 million euros and is financed by the Veneto Region together with the five Chambers of Commerce operating in this area. The amount for which the contribution can be requested is 80% of the expenses incurred, up to a maximum of €4,000.00(corresponding to eligible expenses of €5,000.00 or more).
Contributions for IPR expenditure that can be claimed under this call for applications can be cumulated with the tax credit under DL 34/2020 (if claimed). In this case, an application for a grant shall be made only for the amount of expenditure that has not already been covered by the tax credit or other contribution.
