At Thursday's municipal council in Jönköping, it was decided that associations in Jönköping municipality should be able to take part in five million kroner in support for high electricity prices.

According to Eva Persson (C), 80 percent of the facilities in the municipality are owned by associations, while the national average is 38 percent.

- It is therefore a large proportion of children and young people who are affected by this through their leisure activities.

It sends a positive signal to all struggling non-profit leaders who have to get to grips with the business after the pandemic, she said at the council meeting.

The decision was made by a unanimous council and is paid for by two million kroner from the municipal board's allocation for undistributed profit funds and three million kroner by reducing the budgeted result correspondingly.
