Urban environment: General grant

General grants can be applied for by registered organisations, which have been operational for at least a year and whose operations are aimed for the benefit of the people of Helsinki.

Environmental affairs, general grant application

Organisations whose activities support and complement the activities and services of the Urban Environment Committee's Environment and Permits Sub-committee and the Urban Environment Division's environmental services to Helsinki residents may apply for a grant for their operations.

How the process works

General grants can be applied for by registered organisations that have been active for at least a year and whose activities are aimed at Helsinki residents.
Applications for budget grants must be submitted by the end of April of the preceding year. The exact submission deadline is indicated annually in a joint public notice of the city.

1. Decisions on environmental affairs grants are made by the Urban Environment Committee's Environment and Permits sub-committee.
2. Applicants will be informed of decisions by email.
3. Grants awarded will be paid to the applicant organisation's bank account.
4. A report of the use of the grant must be provided when submitting the application for the following year. Even if the grant is not applied for the next year, a report must still be provided. In this case, the report can be submitted using the messaging feature.

Validity period

An application submitted by the deadline will remain valid until a decision has been taken. A new application for the same purpose will replace the old application if it is sent before the deadline.

Additional information

A grant may only be used for the purpose it was awarded for and cannot be awarded onwards.
