The government promises 70 million to preserve old churches in next year’s state budget.

The money will be used to preserve churches built from before 1850. The funds will be used to renew electrical installations, old pipe stoves will be replaced and climate will be a priority, writes Vårt Land.

– “I am happy and proud of this,” says Minister for Children and Families Kjell Ingolf Ropstad (KrF).

This year, 20 million was originally allocated for similar measures in the state budget, but then came an extra allocation of 50 million as part of the package of measures in connection with the pandemic.

For 2021, the level will thus be maintained at NOK 70 million.
