The Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works (MRDPW) has launched the recruitment of proposals for the implementation of investments under the selection procedure "Support for sustainable energy renovation of a public building fund for administrative services, culture and sports".

It is expected that more than 600 objects will be renovated - administrative buildings, buildings for culture and art and buildings for sports, state or municipal property. The resource is pre-allocated, with the municipalities grouped into three groups, according to size. Eligible candidates for the provision of funds under the procedure can be municipal and regional administrations, as well as ministries or other public body, owner of the relevant public building (central and territorial administrations).

The specific objectives of the procedure are to improve the energy characteristics of state and municipal buildings, which must reach energy consumption class "B" after the implementation of energy-saving measures in public buildings, with the exception of buildings - cultural values included in the scope of the Law on Cultural Heritage. It is a requirement of the Application Guidelines that each building achieve a minimum of 30% primary energy savings.

The budget of the program is distributed by types of buildings, with the largest percentage of it (70%) earmarked for administrative buildings, and 15% for public service buildings in the field of culture and art and those for sports. Sports and children's playgrounds, gyms, school sports facilities and huts are not allowed.
