The Ministry of Education grants state financial aid to municipalities for measures to improve and stabilise the understanding in school communities of the Roma culture and to costs related to such programs. The amount of the available aid in 2008-2009 was EUR 300,000. A total of 14 municipalities received such aid. In 2010-2011, the amount of the aid will be increased to EUR 650,000. More municipalities are encouraged to take advantage, and the existing ones are encouraged to expand their programs. Approximately 75% or all Roma children in compulsory school are included in the scope of these measures.
