National/Regional schemes for Municipalities, Social Housing, Companies, Enterprises

In this category you will find a list of the existing national and regional funding mechanisms that are aimed at legal persons, e.g. companies, SMEs, municipalities, homeowners associations etc. These schemes have greater diversity than those aimed at natural persons, because they range from relatively small, single-building interventions to large, neighbourhood-scale projects. The funds can be available in non-repayable investments and/or favourable loans (often a combination of the two).
