  • Service
  • Nationwide except the Åland Islands
  • Public service

Grant for the promotion of waste management in fell areas can be applied for by associations, companies and municipalities operating in a fell area. It is available for associations, businesses and local authorities operating in fell zones, especially for the purpose of reducing litter, and for development and education relating to waste management systems and approaches for the fell regions of Lapland.

Do the following

If possible, submit your application online (Application for waste management grant for fells). If you are unable to use the online form, you can use a printed application form instead. Send the application as an attachment to the general online form to the registry of the Lapland ELY Centre. You can also send the form by post. The ELY Centres’ contact information is available under Service Locations.

Payment application

The grant is usually paid retrospectively based on actual costs. Up to 25% of the grant can be paid in advance if it is deemed justified from the point of view of the use and monitoring of the grant.

Use the payment application form with 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 Lapland ELY Centre. There are separate online forms for organisations/businesses and local authorities. Choose the appropriate ELY Centre under Asia > Virasto in the online form.

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