Deals for the financing of projects fostering the return of Croats from Bosnia and Herzegovina to their pre-war homes were handed out in the Central State Office for Reconstruction and Housing on Wednesday.
Croatia has secured 3.8 million Kuna for the 35 projects this year. To date Croatia has set aside 62 million Kuna for government's plan to create sustainable conditions for the return of Croats to Bosnia and Herzegovina.
State Secretary at the Central State Office for Reconstruction and Housing, Nikola Mažar: "What makes me especially happy, is that the funds are earmarked for family farms, meaning the development of rural settings, and scholarships for students and aid for people with special needs and assistance for our youth."
"This will boost the quality of life for those people that live in those areas. That is the story in terms of our relations with neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina, where Croats are one of the three constituent peoples," concluded Zvonko Milas, the State Secretary at the Central State Office for Croats Living Abroad.
