Since Poland’s entry into the European Union, Warsaw has obtained over PLN 18 billion from the EU budget for investments and development. The capital city of our country is a leader in obtaining EU funds in the entire Central and Eastern Europe region. The largest project supported by these funds is the Metro.
The presidents of Bratislava, Budapest, Prague and Warsaw signed the Pact of Free Cities in the Hungarian capital. They pledged in it to defend democratic values and collectively seek European subsidies directly for their local government bodies.
Until the end of next year Warsaw residents have an opportunity to get rid of obsolete furnaces with financial support from the City of Warsaw. This year the city's subsidy may reach up to 90 percent. A city campaign has just been launched to encourage Varsovians to replace their high-emission furnaces with more environmentally friendly heat sources.
Cities are at the forefront of the fight against climate change, therefore additional funding for projects that have a direct impact on the quality of life of citizens is essential. The Presidents of the Pact of Free Cities delivered the common statement of the representatives of European cities in Brussels.
Local government officials from Poland and Hungary addressed a letter to European Commission President - Ursula von der Leyen today, outlining their shared position on the governments’ planned veto of the European Union budget and the issue of aid funds.
