The city's grants are meant to support such events and activities that make Vantaa a better place to live in. Some of the grants can only be applied for within a fixed period of time, while others can be applied for throughout the year.
In early spring, grants for the following purposes are open for applications: health and welfare promotion, significant societal work, sports organizations, physical exercise for special groups, stipends for artists, basic art education, cultural activities for retirees' and veterans' organizations, cultural activities, and youth activities.
You can apply for Cultural Services' project assistance and local civic activity grants for arranging local events. Applications for these grants can be submitted throughout the year. Nevertheless, applications for grants shall be submitted in good time before the event in question: applications for project assistance and district allocation shall be submitted at least 21 days before the event.
You can apply for cultural institutions' operating grants for the following year in the fall.
The grant applications are submitted by the deadline mentioned in the announcement to the Vantaan kaupunki, Kirjaamo (Asematie 7, 01300 Vantaa) or to Vantaa Info service points.
