The Olympic Games subsidies programme contributes to the success of the event.
Inspiring others with the universal spirit of the Olympic Games
The Olympic Games Subsidies programme is intended to help the NOCs to participate in the Games of the Olympiad and the Olympic Winter Games. The financial assistance provided has two quite different yet complementary objectives: to help foster the universal spirit of the Olympic Games by guaranteeing the participation of all NOCs; and to give additional support to NOCs, which contribute partly to the development and success of the Games.
Three main phases
This financial assistance is given in three phases:
- Before the Games: travel expenses for one person to attend the meeting between the Chefs de Mission and the Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (OCOG).
- During the Games: travel expenses for a number of athletes and officials, subsidy for logistical expenses and subsidy towards the transport and accommodation of NOC Presidents and Secretaries General.
- After the Games: subsidy to the NOCs for their participation in, and their contribution to, the success of the Games.
Additionally, if the OCOG organises an International Youth Camp, Olympic Solidarity contributes by covering the travel expenses of one young person designated by each NOC.
