The Council of the Government, yesterday, June 13, 2017, approved the amount that the Basque Government will send out to support the 190 Euskal Etxeak and federations that can be found in 25 countries around the world.
This year, the amount has increased by €40,000, to a total of €902,307. As Irekia explains:
“Most of these grants, €782,307, will be for helping annual or specific activities that the Euskal Etxeak organize, preferably in the areas of youth, women, image abroad, and communication and recovery of Historical Memory, as well as operating and current expenses.
The rest of the amount, €120,000, that is, €40,000 more than last year in the infrastructure section, will be for financing, in whole or in part, the expenses and updates that help improve the centers themselves, such as repairing damage caused by natural disaster, eliminating physical barriers to people with limited mobility, the construction of new Basque centers, updating centers for youth, or introducing technology for the development of activities for youth and women.”
Important: the timeframe for Basque Centers to ask for grants expires a month after the announcement is published in the Official Bulletin of the Basque Country.
