What we offer

EEA GRANT

EEA & Norway Grants

The EEA and Norway Grants are funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. The Grants have two objectives:

  1. to reduce social and economic disparities within Europe and
  2. to strengthen bilateral relations between Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway and Europe

During the 2014-2021 funding period, the EEA & Norway Grants amounted to €2.8 billion. The five areas where funding was primarily provided are the following:

  • Innovation, Research, Education & Competitiveness
  • Social Inclusion, Youth Employment & Poverty Reduction
  • Environment, Energy, Climate Change & Low Carbon Economy
  • Culture, Civil Society, Good Governance, Fundamental Rights & Freedoms
  • Justice & Home Affairs

Our charity, St Louca’s Community, was successful in securing €850.000 from the EEA Grants under the umbrella of social inclusion to co-finance the construction of a new, state-of-the-art Multifunctional Community Centre for people with disabilities located in the Nicosia district (Filani). Once completed, this will comprise of a 3-storey, main building and 6 independent houses offering health care, day care, accommodation, support and development to adults and children with complex disabilities.

As this is a very costly project, it has been decided that construction will be completed in four independent phases. In October 2019 we began construction of part of the main building (Phase A) financed by own funds which were raised through various activities/events and donors over the years. By securing €850.000 from the EEA Grants and €150.000 from the Republic of Cyprus we were able to extent construction in November 2020 to include the entire basement and one of the houses (Phase B). Both phases of the project are expected to be completed by April 2023.

By completing this part of the project, we will be in a position to offer a range of therapies (hydrotherapy, speech therapy, physiotherapy etc) day care, exercise, recreation and creative & developmental activities to our fellow human beings with disabilities.
