FIO is a support program addressed to young non-governmental organizations, informal groups and self-help groups operating in the Lesser Poland Voivodeship. The program is implemented in the new formula of the governmental Civic Initiatives Fund Program for 2014-2020, financed from national public funds from the state budget.
As part of the FIO Małopolska Locally program, micro-subsidies are the basic support tool, while support tools that we use are training, consulting and animation.
As part of the program, in subsequent years we awarded grants with the following total amounts:
Edition 2014 – 155,000 PLN
Edition 2015 – PLN 215,000
Edition 2016 – PLN 207,000
Edition 2017 – PLN 205,000
From 2014 to 2017, the ARTS Art, Adventure and Pleasure Foundation was one of four sub-regional Operators in the Małopolska Locally FIO grant competition. In the years 2018-2019, the program operated as the FIO Małopolska Locally South
