Environment Minister Martin Bursik has revealed that the Czech Republic could draw up to 150 billion crowns (the equivalent of around 7 billion US dollars) within the European Commission's Environment Action Programme, between the years 2007 - 2013. In the first stage, some 20 billion crowns will be up for distribution. It will be possible for municipalities, regions, civic associations and other groups to apply as of September. According to the information released, subsidies will be divided in five areas: water protection, air pollution, reliance on renewable energy resources, waste management, and education on environmental issues. Successful applicants could see up to 85 percent of their project costs covered.
