We award grants for youth work, sports and library initiatives 

Each year, we award more than EUR 50 million in discretionary government grants towards various projects and initiatives aimed at promoting youth clubs, library services and sports. 

We award government grants to organisations such as municipalities and joint municipal authorities, associations, foundations, limited companies and other registered corporations. We do not award grants to private individuals.  

We award grants on a discretionary basis. The purposes for which discretionary government grants may be awarded are determined in the Budget.  

The objectives of the grants and the more detailed criteria for awarding them depend on the type of the grant. They are described in the grant-specific call for applications. The call for applications also specifies for whom the grant is intended and who can apply for it.
