France/Bourgogne Franche-Comté: €6.5 million compensation to support local facilities

Published on 17/10/2021 | La rédaction


To compensate for the loss of revenue by local authorities during the Covid-19 crisis, the government has taken measures. For example, Burgundy Franche-Comté will receive 6.5 million euros to support its local facilities. Each region will receive compensation.

During the health crisis, the government adopted measures to compensate for the loss of revenue suffered by local authorities. These measures had two main objectives: "to give local authorities visibility by guaranteeing them a minimum level of revenue in 2020 and 2021 to support their territory during the crisis and to preserve the financial situation of the local authorities that suffered the most significant losses ".

The successive Finance Acts passed since July 2020 have thus instituted several mechanisms for guaranteeing the tax, state and fare revenues of local authorities and mobility organising authorities in the form of refundable advances and loss compensation allocations. Provisions have been made for these mechanisms in the amount of €4.2 billion. The exceptional allocations to support local investment provided for in the recovery plan (€2.5 billion for all levels of local authorities in 2020 and 2021) have completed these emergency measures.
