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, in July 2020 was successful in securing €1m 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 €
from the EEA Grants 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 were completed end of April 2024. In 2022, an additional funding of €708.588 was approved, which was used for the construction of one more independent house and to accommodate part of the rising construction cost. In 2024 extra funding of €230.000 was approved to cover additional construction cost and purchase of equipment. The total budgeted amount is €2.153.987 (€1.938.588 EEA & Republic of Cyprus – €215.399 Own Funds).

With the completion of this part of the project, the following will be offered:

  • 24-hour care programs
  • Day care programs
  • A range of therapies (hydrotherapy, speech therapy, physiotherapy etc)
  • Various recreation, creative & developmental activities
  • Physical exercising
  • Entertainment

INTERREG V-A Greece-Cyprus 2014-2020

The foundation “St. Lukas Community “ participates in the “ΕΝΕΡΓΟΠΟΙΩ” action, within the framework of the INTERREG program Greece and Cyprus 2014- 2020. The project is co-funded by the Eu, the ETPA and the National Resources of Greece and Cyprus, with a budget of €2.840.485,53. An amount of €1.747.766 has been allocated to the foundation.

The aim of “ΕΝΕΡΓΟΠΟΙΩ” action is to implement pilot energy-saving projects in public buildings in Greece and Cyprus and to develop “common standards” for the establishment and operation of energy communities that will implement the pilot projects.

In this context, St. Lukas community enriches its under- construction buildings with the necessary materials and implements a photovoltaic park to upgrade them from energy class B to energy class A.
