Last updated: 9 May 2023

The Government of Hungary allocated HUF 5 billion in subsidies to municipalities for the purchase of firewood and coal to help vulnerable communities amid the energy crisis. Until 28 April 2023, municipalities with under 5,000 inhabitants can apply for the non refundable direct grants under the program provided they have issued a municipal decree setting up the rules of distribution of the subsidies to their vulnerable residents. The government will pay out the grants to eligible municipalities by 15 September 2023.
