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.
Available to FIA members only, there are two funding sources:
- The FIA Development Fund, established by the FIA Mobility Secretariat. It helps Clubs achieve growth in membership and improvement in services.
- The FIA Road Safety Grant Programme, established in 2012 with an endowment from the FIA Foundation. It funds Club projects for promotion and progress in Road Safety around the world.
