Accordingly, to qualify for the environmental impact assessment funding, the craft villages have to apply for recognition of "craft villages and traditional trade villages" and once being recognized, they will be funded to carry out the environmental impact assessment.
In term of supporting brand building and brand ownership such as training on brand building and development, consulting branding strategy, logo design and the system of corresponding brand identification signs for brands, communication, marketing, product promotion, the municipal government will give a maximum of VND100 million (US$4,300) per item. A craft village can register up to five items
