Presentation of the device

What is aid to regional, departmental and local daily political and general information with low resources of classifieds?

Assistance to local daily political and general information with low resources of classifieds is intended to contribute to the maintenance of pluralism and the independence of the securities concerned.

This grant is divided into two sections:

  • The aid granted under Section 1 shall be granted to local dailies meeting certain conditions relating to the average selling price, distribution and circulation and the percentage of advertising revenue in their total advertising revenue.
  • The aid granted under the second section is granted to local dailies which are not eligible for the first section but which nevertheless meet a number of conditions relating to the sale price, the average distribution and circulation, as well as the percentage of advertising revenue in their total advertising revenue, of which more than a quarter of the paid distribution is by postal subscription.

Am I concerned by this approach?
