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