Local Authorities Contract Nearly 190 Million Levs For Social Services under EU-backed Programme in 2016

In 2016, the local authorities contracted 187 million leva for social services under the Operational Programme Human Resources Development, the National Association of Municipalities in the Republic of Bulgaria (NAMRB) said on Thursday.
In 2016, forty-two per cent of all municipal contracts under operational programmes were for social services and were worth a total of 187 million leva. Municipalities have received 49 million leva, which is 26 per cent of the contracts' worth.
The main problem for the local authorities is the postponement of planned schemes under which they are beneficiaries.
In 2016, local authorities provided hourly services to over 16,000 persons under an independent living scheme which aims to provide social services in a home environment for people with disabilities and the elderly.
