STEA grants

Non-profit organisations can apply for grants from the Funding Centre for Social Welfare and Health Organisations (STEA) for their work that promotes health and social welfare.

Organisations receive grants for general or targeted activities, investments, development projects, introductory projects and other projects with a defined purpose.

STEA draws up a grant proposal annually.  An assessment and grant division will be established under the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health. The division will prepare grant proposals and the Ministry will decide on the allocation of grants.  The decision proposal will then be submitted to the Ministerial Committee on Finance for approval.

Legislation on STEA grants

The following statutes regulate the awarding of STEA grants.
