Author: Anne Ghysels (Legal Expert)
Date:

The Walloon government grants a new allowance to non-profit organisations that were forced to close on 19 October and 2 November 2020, provided certain conditions are met.

This aid is now accessible to you via the Walloon Region's on-line platform. You must apply for this allowance by 28 October 2021 at the latest.

Are you entitled to this aid?

You must:

  • be a non-profit association;
  • be subject to VAT;
  • employ at least 1 person (in 2021) with an employment contract and employ less than 250 people (in FTE in 2021);
  • carry out an economic activity, i.e. an activity consisting of offering goods or services on a given market;
  • have a social purpose of an economic nature;
  • have a public funding which does not exceed 50% outside the employment aid on the basis of the approved 2019 accounts;
  • not have benefited from COVID aid granted by another region in the context of the Covid 19 crisis for an amount equal to or greater than the minimum intervention amount.

What is the amount of the aid?

The amount of your aid depends on your sector of activity (based on your NACE code) and the number of employee (expressed in full-time equivalents).

This number corresponds to the average number of employees in 2019 employed under an employment contract in all the operating offices of your npa corresponding to the number of work units (WU), calculated on the basis of your DmfA declarations for 2019.
