The Ministry of Education main class (29) in the state budget includes an appropriation for supporting the Sámi culture and the activity of Sámi organizations. The appropriation is distributed by the Cultural Committee of the Sámi Parliament.


The culture appropriation in 2015 is 176,000 euros. The subsidies from the appropriation are distributed on application for different sectors of Sámi art and culture, and to Sámi organizations. The grounds for the distribution are stated in the working order of the Sámi Parliament. According to it, the subsidies are allotted as a cultural appropriation (such as project support, work and travelling subsidies) and as an activity and publishing appropriation for the Sámi organizations. In addition, the committee can grant a special culture prize without application.
