Funding and management

Each year the Arts Promotion Centre Finland awards over 32 million euros in grants, prizes and subsidies to approximately 3500 artists and communities. The Ministry of Education and Culture allocates the funds to the Arts Promoiton Centre Finland. The amount represents eight percent of the total state budget for the arts. The decisions regarding grants and subsidies are made by the national and regional arts councils, and the boards for grants.

The majority of the grants and subsidies awarded by the various expert bodies of the Arts Promotion Centre Finland are lottery funds. Each year the Ministry of Education and Culture decides how the nation's lottery and betting funds will be distributed for different purposes.

Funds for national artist grants, as well as grants and subsidies for writers and translators, come from the national budget. The Centre's administrative costs, which amount to approximately five million euros per year, are also covered by funds allocated by the Ministry of Education and Culture.

The Arts Promotion Centre Finland operates under the performance supervision of the Ministry of Education and Culture. Performance targets are set for three-year periods, and they are reviewed annually.
