Municipalities may apply for discretionary state grants for the preparation of groundwater area protection plans.

Do the following

How to apply

The applicant should know the location, objectives, schedule, costs and other funding of the project and the most detailed plan possible to implement the project.

If possible, submit your application online (Grant application for the preparation of groundwater area protection plans). Choose the ELY Centre responsible for the area in which the site is located.

If you are unable to apply online, please use the printable application form instead. Send it to the registry of the ELY Centre in question. The registries’ contact information is provided on the application form.

Payment application

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 organisations and private citizens. Choose the appropriate ELY Centre under Asia > Virasto in the online form.

Alternatively, you can send your payment application by post to a payment unit location of the KEHA-Centre. See the KEHA-Centre website for contact information.

To whom and on what terms

The grant is discretionary, and the amount and scope of funding are defined in the application announcements published annually in the autumn. Application announcements are published on the ELY centres’ website. Information on groundwater area protection plans is available on the environmental administration’s website.
