~€8.57 million – €14.29 million/year (3-5 billion HUF /year)


Municipalities of settlements with a population of less than 5000 can apply for the government allowance. They purchase fuel and distribute it among households in need under certain conditions. The fairness of distribution, both nationally and locally, is questionable. Since 2014, in addition to firewood, this source can also be used for lignite. Initially, 84 municipalities took advantage of this opportunity, but in 2019, their number increased to 252. Not relevant for MFABs.
