What is STEA?
The Funding Centre for Social Welfare and Health Organisations (STEA) manages the funding granted for projects which are non-profit by nature and promote health and wellbeing, from the gaming revenue of Veikkaus Oy. The funding granted from Veikkaus Oy’s revenue for projects related to arts, culture, and sports are managed by the Ministry of Education and Culture, and funding for projects related to the promotion of horse breeding and equestrian sports by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.
The Act on Discretionary Government Transfers (Valtionavustuslaki, 688/2001) is applied to the funding granted. Operating methods related to government subsidies are regulated through separate decrees.
