Proving the right to use services
If aid is applied for an organisation, prepare to prove that you have the right to act on behalf of the applying organisation. If you use the local government e-service, we recommend that you use the Suomi.fi e-Authorizations service. Authorisation concerning this aid is “Applying for discretionary government transfers for environmental purposes”. More information about Suomi.fi authorisations is available in the Suomi.fi service.
If you have the sole right to sign for your organisation as defined in your organisation’s rules, you can submit an electronic application on your organisation’s behalf without any separate authorisation.
If you do not have the sole right to sign for your organisation and your organisation does not use the Suomi.fi e-Authorizations service, or if you apply for aid using a printed form, attach a power of attorney with your application. The power of attorney must indicate that you have the right to act on your organisation’s behalf in this matter.
If your grant application is approved, you can request payment after the work has been duly completed.
Use the form “Payment application - environment, waterways and built heritage”. The payment application has separate instructions. There is also a separate form for recording work hours in the case of unpaid work. Send your payment application form as an attachment to the general online form of the ELY Centre directly to the registry of the ELY Centre that approved your grant application. There are separate online forms for private individuals/companies/organisations/operators and municipalities. Choose the appropriate ELY Centre under Asia > Virasto in the online form.
