National Grant Schemes


National Grant Schemes

The National Grant Schemes are designed and approved at national level and are funded solely by national funds. The aim of these projects is the implementation of various state policies and priorities e.g. strengthening employment, promotion of tourism, etc. The implementation and management of these projects takes place exclusively in Cyprus, under the responsibility of the relevant Ministries, public agencies and authorities. These funds are accessible to a big number of beneficiaries and many different types of businesses. It is important to note that these opportunities are available every year and might even open several times or stay open throughout a year, until all funds are distributed.
