The government is spending 950 million forints (EUR 2.8m) in support of sport and recreational activities in Hungary this year, a government official said. Máriusz Révész, the government commissioner for an active Hungary, said the National Bicycle Park and National Running Tracks programmes are each receiving 400 million forints, and a 150 million grant will be provided to support the development of via ferrata routes. In the first two programmes, municipalities can apply for funding covering 50% of project costs and in the case of the via ferrata, the extent of the funding is 100%, Révész said. The commissioner’s office is working with civil organisations to ensure that those developments will contribute to healthier lifestyles.
