LATVIA – Cabinet of Ministers
Government allocates €2.5 million to compensate for rising energy costs for cultural institutions and cultural outreach.
Significant price increases for energy resources have made it difficult for the institutions to secure increased payments for utilities within the framework of existing funding. Additional funding is required to ensure that the core activities of cultural institutions and cultural education establishments are not affected by rising energy prices.
According to calculations submitted by institutions, cultural heritage institutions, museums and libraries need 2,091,742 euros, secondary vocational education institutions of the Ministry of Education need 446,687 euros and the State Culture Capital Fund needs 2,800 euros to cover the increased costs.
