The Ministry of Transport, Construction and Regional Development was given power to coordinate these programs on November 1. According to a decision made by the European Commission, the n+3 rule is applied, which means that the approved funds may be additionally drawn for three years after the end of the seven-year period. As much as €11.36 billion was originally appropriated, but this amount was later increased to €11.498 billion.
