GRANT ASSISTANCE. Through the department of HABE of the Basque Government, our NABO Basque clubs that are maintaining a viable Euskara program are eligible to apply for financial assistance.  Collectively, we have decided that all upcoming requests will be coordinated through NABO; i.e., all grant requests and payments will be made directly to NABO by HABE, and then redistributed to eligible clubs.

We believe that the single greatest element in this Euskara endeavor is the instructor; if they remain committed then we have an Euskara program at your club whereas if they quit nothing happens.  Thus the payments are intended to go primarily to this person(s).  Each club can decide how to best distribute its share of the grant (e.g., how much goes to the instructor, rental of a facility, classroom materials, etc.)


  • Your club must have a BOGA program underway with an instructor and regular conversation classes that meet at least twice a month.

  • Payments are intended to primarily go to the instructor(s) 


  • Collected applications will be sent to HABE when they call for them usually in October or November.

  • The grant cycle is from October 1 to September 30

  • To confirm that the money is being used for the stated purpose, two submissions a year of receipts/verifications are to be submitted with the dates corresponding to the following. 

  • First submission is February 15 (which includes expenses from Oct. 1-Dec. 31).  Prior to this you club will be contacted for some details that NABO will submit.

  • Second submission is October 15 (with expenses from Jan. 1-Sept. 30).  Included here should be a list of the classroom hours of Euskara and a progress report of your club's program.
