The Government has extended to January 31 the deadline to apply for aid from the Comprehensive Plan to Promote the Social Economy (PERTE) for the generation of an economic, inclusive and sustainable fabric, which expired this Saturday, according to the Official State Gazette (BOE).
On December 5, the call for aid for innovative projects for the years 2022 and 2023, endowed with 99.3 million euros, within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, was approved.
The main purpose of this aid is to grow and consolidate this inclusive and sustainable economic fabric represented by all companies in the Social Economy, from cooperatives to labor societies or insertion companies, fishermen’s associations, special employment centers or foundations.
The BOE explains that the extension is justified by the complexity involved in the presentation of innovative projects in the field of Social Economy subject to subsidy, especially those involving public-private partnerships.
In addition, it is the first time that these grants are called, recently regulated, and the deadline for submitting applications has coincided with the Christmas period, so there are sufficient circumstances that advise the extension of the initially established deadline.
