The Distribution Support program was started in 2005. Subsidies are awarded for additional measures over and above the release campaign already planned by the foreign distributors. The support of a maximum of €50,000 is granted in the form of a conditionally repayable loan. Funding of up €10,000 can also be allocated as a grant.
