The beneficiaries of support in the least developed districts may be municipalities located in such a district, legal entities and other entities of territorial cooperation in accordance with the Action Plan for the Development of the Least Developed District.
Special support for the least developed districts is provided on the basis of action plans approved by the Government of the Slovak Republic.
