Information about operational subsidies for specific artforms
These subsidies are intended for communities in specific fields of the arts, such as associations, cooperatives and companies, to support their ongoing operations. The application period for operational subsidies is in autumn. Operational subsidies may be awarded to support the operations of a community or a specific part of their operations.
Operational subsidies are intended for registered communities in different fields of the arts, such as associations, cooperatives, companies and organisations run by municipalities and foundations. When applying for an operational subsidy, select the artform that your operations most closely involve.
The application period for operational subsidies is in autumn, and they are intended for covering operations in the following year. Operational subsidies may be awarded as either one-year or three-year subsidies. When awarding operational subsidies, Taike takes into consideration other State support received by the applicant, as well as the necessity of the operational subsidy. These subsidies are discretionary and are awarded on an annual basis on condition that Parliament allocates the required appropriations in its annual State budget.
Operational subsidies may cover only a portion of the total funding of operations and not all expenses. The call for applications for operational subsidies specifies the percentage of eligible expenses that the subsidy awarded by Taike may be used to cover. Applications for operational subsidies may be transferred upon review for processing under special subsidies.
The amount of the subsidy combined with other State support may not exceed the total amount of eligible expenses (100%).
Communities that receive an operational subsidy cannot be awarded a special subsidy within a specific artform.
Applicants are notified of the decision by the end of January.
Operational subsidies are intended to:
- Support the livelihood and employment of artists

- Promote the long-term development of communities
