COVID - 2021

CURRENTLY: The first Call was announced by the Ministry of Industry and Trade on 29 March, 2021.

The program is intended to replace the existing programs. In addition to these two compensations, the Antivirus wage compensation and Compensation Bonus supporting self-employed persons will continue.

The aid is intended for companies whose business has been restricted due to the governmental measures. The support is for companies regardless of the specific sector, form of ownership or number of employees.

Costs applicable are from February 2020 to 31 March 2021.

Maximum amount / support: Up to CZK 500 per day, and up to CZK 1 500  per day for applicants with less than 3 employees i.e. a maximum of 1,800,000 EUR per recipient for the given period. The expected amount of the whole program is CZK 6 billion.  

Decisive period: From 11 January 2021 until 31 December 2021. For applicants of the COVID - Accommodation II program: 23 January 2021 until 31 March 2021 is considered to be the relevant period in order to avoid overlapping support.

Receipt of application: From  9 AM on 12 April 2021 until 4 PM on 31 May 2021.

Method of submission: Through the information system accessible from the AIS MIT Portal. Pay attention! Before working on the portal, it is necessary to establish an active identity of a physical person (account), the so-called eIdentity. Applications can be submitted, modified and evaluated, but the release of grant funds will be possible only after the notification of the Program by the European Commission, which is still ongoing. All necessary confirmations and forms are prepared for the applicant in the information system.


COVID - 2021 works as an alternative to the COVID - Uncovered costs program which was also confirmed on 8 March, 2021. Thus companies can choose one of these two programs.
