Wiesbaden (dpa / lhe) - installment payments of almost 52 million euros have so far flowed to the Hessian companies from bridging aid III.

There have been 3837 applications for this financial support in the corona pandemic, said Economics Minister Tarek Al-Wazir (Greens) in Wiesbaden on Saturday.

26.6 million euros were paid out to help the self-employed start-up.

To date, 4905 applications have been received for this.

Bridging aid III is planned for the period up to the end of June.

Companies that are severely affected by the lockdown can receive up to 1.5 million euros per month from the state.

The money does not have to be paid back.

Companies with sales of less than 750 million euros have been able to apply for help since February 10th.

So far, however, there have only been advance payments, i.e. a kind of advance payment on the funding amount.

The application and the advance payments are organized by the federal government.

The processing of the applications and thus also the transfer of the funds that go beyond the advance payments is, according to the information, the task of the federal states.
