Again: Adopt a public space in Józsefváros in 2023!

Last updated: (Létrehozva: )

The maximum amount of support per application is HUF 200.000,-.

The application form is available here.

The form of support is a non-repayable grant.

The duration of the adoption is one year from the date of conclusion of the Grant Agreement. The amount of the grant awarded will be paid out by means of post-financing.

What is adoption?

When applying for a grant, the applicant specifies the public space in which they can and wish to carry out the tasks. It is advisable to choose a public space close to the place of residence or place of business.

The professional criteria and the community tasks to be performed will be agreed with the applicants in cooperation with the Office of Community Participation and the staff of the Józsefváros Management Centre Ltd.

The following tasks are envisaged for cooperation under the programme, but applicants may also undertake other tasks:

  • maintenance of public green areas
  • maintenance of plants and flowerbeds in boxes/containers
  • maintaining dog runs
  • regular collection of litter in public areas
  • deslippage
  • renovation of green areas, e.g. grassing, planting (on a scale not requiring a public space management plan)
  • soil replacement, soil improvement
  • maintenance and care of trees.

If the regular maintenance/planting of the adopted area is preceded by a small-scale renovation (planting, soil replacement, grassing, etc.), this should be carried out first, if possible, so that the area can be maintained in a more orderly manner.

Who can apply to adopt?

  • Individuals over 18 years of age
  • Józsefváros condominiums/ housing cooperatives
  • an organisation (legal entity) with its head office and/or premises in Józsefváros
  • institution in Józsefváros

How does the municipality support the adopter?

In addition to the financial support, the implementation plan proposed by the adopter in the area will be subject to professional review by JGK Zrt. between the submission of the application and the award of the grant, and, if necessary, it will provide ongoing expert assistance in the implementation of the tasks set out in the agreement, as agreed with them. The Office of Community Participation  will advise the adopters on community development and community organisation, and will help to build contacts between adopters, providing an opportunity for the exchange of experience.
