This is the first allocation of the resources received by the Silesian labor office in the latest Regional Operational Programme for Lower Silesia province. In total we will receive more than 36 million zloty to support entrepreneurship and the unemployed.

On Thursday, August 20, directors of the district labor offices of Lower Silesia signed an agreement on subsidies from EU funds under the new ROP. The transfer of contracts took place in Wroclaw and Walbrzych, in the presence of representatives of the province authorities and the Lower Silesian Regional Labor Office.

EU funds will be used for non-repayable grants for the unemployed to set up a business, internships, training, intervention works and the reimbursement of commuting costs.
