Culture explained that the expansion was driven by “the need to devote more time to INAEM management teams to analyze the 1,800 projects submitted on call and to give applicants confidence in the implementation of the submitted projects.” Valeria Kozi, president of Feced, confirms that they are “very happy because the funds will not be lost”. “Given these deadlines, we understand that INAEM will have more time to be able to resolve, we hope they will not run out until the last minute and companies will have more time to meet,” he explains. “It will make a lot of work easier,” he added.
The dance companies were warned that because of their size and continuity, they did not have the liquidity to invest in the projects for which they were seeking help before they knew whether they would receive it. By extending the term, companies will be able to receive and implement assistance in a timely manner.
