Uusimaa Regional Fund

The Uusimaa Regional Fund was founded in 1963 and is one of the Finnish Cultural Foundation's 17 regional funds, and supports artistic and cultural endeavour in the region's 26 municipalities.

The Uusimaa grants are awarded every second year. The next Uusimaa Regional Fund grant application period takes place from 16 Jan to 9 Feb 2024 until 4 pm local Finnish time. The grant applicants can, as usual, apply for a grant from the Central Foundation's October Rounds in 2022 and 2023.

The Fund supports activities focused on subjects of a regional nature or coordinated by people from the region. Grants are awarded for work in the arts and arts-related projects and events. Projects promoting regional culture and carried out by either private individuals or associations, are also supported. The Fund does not support scientific research.

The Uusimaa Regional Fund comprises a General Fund and donation- and bequest-based donor funds. Grants made from the latter are directed towards areas specified by the donor when making his or her bequest. Areas not covered by this procedure are supported from the general funds.

The Fund's activities and decision-making are impartial and not linked to political parties or other organisations or associations. Grants made by the Fund are decided by an Administrative Council representing a wide range of expertise and knowledge in the arts, the sciences, society, and business in the region.
