Funding programmes for Clubs
The FIA Grant Programme encourages Clubs to submit concrete and sustainable projects developing their activities in different areas.
In recent years, the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile has strengthened cooperation with motoring and sporting member Clubs. Programmes subsequently introduced have positively impacted on Clubs and their activities, from raising service standards to the development of sustainable projects and enhanced services in the mobility sector, as well as in motorised sports.
FIA ROAD SAFETY GRANT PROGRAMME
Founded in 2012, the Grant Programme awarded to date over 3 700 000 € in support of the Road Safety Projects all over the world. The FIA Road Safety Grant Programme received 426 applications from over 110 Clubs from 90 countries in all four FIA Regions. Over 180 innovative road safety initiatives have been started in over 60 countries: awareness campaigns, educational programs and trainings, vulnerable road users' protection, conferences, events and workshops, road infrastructure safety information and vehicle inspection programs.
In May 2011 the United Nations launched the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety. The project's goal is to save five million lives and reduce road-related injuries by 50 million worldwide over the next 10 years. To support this landmark project, the FIA created the Action for Road Safety Programme to support the UN programme through its global network of motoring and touring clubs and its involvement with motor sports. The FIA Foundation welcomed this initiative and agreed to fund the FIA Strategic Road Safety Programme with an endowment of 1 million EUR per annum.
The application process for 2016 will open in July 2015.
