Investments in coal regions

The state of Saxony-Anhalt grants benefits according to the "Guideline on the granting of benefits to local authorities and other bodies responsible for municipal tasks in Saxony-Anhalt according to the Investment Law Coal Regions (Guideline Saxony-Anhalt Revier 2038)" for particularly significant investments in the part located in Saxony-Anhalt of the Central German Revier.

The grants aim to cope with the structural change in the course of the end of the conversion of lignite into electricity and to secure employment in the affected region.

Cross-funding projects require close cooperation between the responsible approval authorities. The funding pilot advises the developer on the appropriate subdivision of overall projects into sub-projects, if necessary in coordination with the approval authorities; in case of doubt, the guideline provider decides.

Projects that are funded according to this guideline must work in the Saxony-Anhalt part of the Central German Revier in accordance with Section 2 No. 3 letter b of the Coal Regions Investment Act: Burgenlandkreis, kreisfreie Stadt Halle, Landkreis Mansfeld-Südharz, Landkreis Anhalt-Bitterfeld, Saalekreis.
