What?
The aim of the Baltic Sea Action Plan Fund is to help restore the ecological status of the Baltic Sea. The fund provides grants and financing for projects from both public and private entities operating in the agricultural and wastewater treatment sectors, as well as those working to reduce hazardous waste in the Baltic Sea catchment area. A key purpose of the fund is to facilitate and speed up the preparation of projects certain to bring a profit.

The fund provides grant financing for the following:
• funds for project preparation and development, including feasibility studies, development of business ideas, and cash-flow models
• technical assistance for institutional support, that is, training and support needed for project preparation, development and implementation;
• improving efficiency and quality in project implementation through, for example, supporting the acquisition of equipment for demonstration purposes.

Can I apply for funding?
Yes, if you have a project in the public or private sector operating in the agricultural and wastewater treatment sectors. You are also eligible for funding if you are working to reduce hazardous waste in the Baltic Sea catchment area.
