ORIHUELA city hall will soon be paying out €3.034 million via the regional government’s Plan Resistir.
The Generalitat will cover 62 per cent of this amount, the Diputacion provincial council is providing 22.5 per cent, with the remainder coming from Orihuela city hall.
These funds will go to the self-employed and small firms that come under the Plan Resistir umbrella and whose earnings have been hit by the year-long Covid-19 pandemic.
These include restaurants, hotels, tourist accommodation, catering companies and campsites amongst others.
“We can allocate the Plan Resistir funds once this has been published in the Alicante Province Bulletin (BOP), after which applicants will have 20 working days to present their paperwork,” said Orihuela’s Industry and Commerce councillor Victor Bernabeu.
Deputy mayor Jose Aix declared that Orihuela city hall had been “unfairly” accused of taking too long to make the Plan Resistir cash available.
“What is important is that we are doing this late so that we can correct what others have done less well or badly,” Aix said.
“We shall be able to help more people, something that the others have not done. We are in favour of direct help, being able to fill the streets with people while complying with all health and safety measures, to activate the economy.”
