BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – Federal aid for the regions affected by the coal phase-out is slowly starting. So far, seven projects with a volume of 80.5 million have been started within the framework of the financial aid, according to a report by the managing minister of economics Peter Altmaier (CDU) for the federal cabinet. A total of 175 projects with a volume of 3.01 billion euros have been confirmed.

The grand coalition had agreed to phase out the extraction and combustion of the climate-damaging coal by 2038 at the latest. In order to help the coal fields in East Germany and North Rhine-Westphalia with change, up to 40 billion euros are to flow. The federal government alone wants to create 5,000 jobs in the regions by 2028 by completely or partially relocating the authorities. According to the report, 2140 positions are already filled.
