Programme Area

The Programme is addressed to Polish, Belarusian and Ukrainian border regions and covers NUTS3 units on the Polish side and territorial units at the level of oblasts in Belarus and Ukraine.

The Programme area is divided into core (located by the border) and adjoining regions. To continue the schemes elaborated in the CBC Programme Poland-Belarus-Ukraine 2007-2013 and to achieve stronger cross-border impact, regions adjacent to the Programme core regions were allowed to participate in the 2014-2020 programming period. Despite the division into core and adjoining regions, the institutions from both these areas are treated equally when applying for the Programme co-financing.
