Headline: Measures for hardship – Processing of requests if possible before the end of the year
The Executive Council welcomes the program proposed by the Federal Council to alleviate hardship cases caused by the coronavirus crisis. He decided that the Canton of Bern would participate in this program through a cantonal hardship ordinance based on Article 15 of the Economic Development Act. According to the Bernese government, it is important that the federal program can be implemented quickly and inexpensively. In addition, purely cantonal support measures are being studied. The government expects the overall cost of measures for hardship cases borne by the canton to be around one hundred million francs. The Executive Council is pleased to note that the Federal Council has taken its advice into account and it thanks it.
