Preparation and filing of applications for aid.
Meadowpresentation of aid
Created by the decree of 10 May 1996, the purpose of the fund for aid to the regional and local periodical press is to promote the circulation at the number of the titles of the regional press for political and general information, The European Parliament, the European Parliament and the Council are all aware of the need to ensure that the European Parliament, the Council, the Commission and the European Parliament are fully involved.
In fact, since the regional press sales networks are largely located in rural and semi-rural areas,In rural areas, any effort to develop number sales entails significant financial burdens in relation to the financial size of the publishing companies.
The original scheme was modified by the decree of 20 November 1997 which created a second section to support the subscription distribution of the regional weekly press. The aim was to take into account the situation of the weeklies most affected by the increase in postal rates resulting from the press/post/state negotiations (Galmot agreements).
Decree no. 2004-1312 of 26 November 2004 repeals the aforementioned decrees and in particular opens the benefit of this fund to the titles of the regional weekly press written in a regional language.
Finally, a reform took place with decree no. 2016-1161 of 26 August 2016. It has extended the scheme to bimonthly, monthly, bimonthly and quarterly, for which a third section of aid is intended. The aid was renamed “aid to the pluralism of the regional and local periodical press” on this occasion.
The aid benefits regional and local press publications other than dailies.
That is to say:
a) For weeklies, one to three times a week and more than 40 times a year;
b) For other publications, be a bimonthly, a monthly, a bimonthly or a quarterly and appear between four and forty times a year.
