The main goal of “Children’s playgrounds” is to create opportunities for receiving services for the children of the employees. Up to five employers can apply in partnership to create a common children’s playground. Each newly created playground must provide the necessary environment for the care of at least 15 children. Caretakers will be hired through the Labor Offices and, if necessary, will be trained. Their remuneration will depend on whether the services are hourly or full-time, and the projects will cover their remuneration for a period of up to 12 months.
The minimum amount of financial support from OPHRD for the creation of a children’s playground at the workplace is BGN 50,000, and the maximum – BGN 150,000. Applicants must provide co-financing for the implementation of their projects, which depends on the size of the companies. Large enterprises can receive financial support up to 70% of the project costs, medium-sized enterprises – up to 80% of the costs, and micro and small enterprises – up to 90% of the project implementation costs. The budget of Operation Children’s Playgrounds is BGN 15 million.
The deadline for submission of proposals is December 15, 2020, 5:30 p.m.
