The STAFE Program
"STAFE" is a program that provides financial support to associative projects initiated by French persons established outside of France.
Associations registered either in our district or in France (1901 law) can benefit from the STAFE program for their projects and obtain French public subsidies.

The projects carried out by these associations must be of an educational, charitable, cultural or economic integration nature.
They must contribute to the influence of France, French people abroad and French-speaking audiences.
Information on the conditions of eligibility of the project, the possible amount of subsidies, the timetable for 2020 is available at the consulate
The grant application file must be obtained from the Consulate no later than May 4, 2020 and be returned to it no later than May 11, 2020.
