The ‘EU4Business: SME Competitiveness and Internationalisation’ programme will support about 300 micro and small enterprises who suffered the most due to Russia’s armed aggression against Ukraine.
The purpose of the grant programme is to help businesses relocated from war-affected areas to restore and/or support production, provide services to maintain Ukraine’s economic potential and supply critical goods and services needed by Ukrainians and the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
The grants worth €4,000 each will be disbursed in hryvnia using a grant mechanism on the Diia platform.
Enterprises registered in the Chernihiv, Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson, Mykolaiv, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk, Luhansk, and Kyiv regions are eligible to apply. They must be registered in accordance with the current legislation of Ukraine as of 31 December, 2021 at the latest.
The deadline for proposals is 30 May.
The call is financed by the European Union and the German government and implemented by EU4Business and the Ukrainian government (MinDigital, MinEconomy, and Entrepreneurship and Export Promotion Office of Ukraine).
