Language promotion subsidies

Federal Office of Culture

Key facts

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) conducted an audit of the effectiveness of language promotion subsidies at the Federal Office of Culture (FOC). The FOC promotes multilingualism and communication between the language communities in Switzerland with around CHF 15 million per year. Around half of these funds go to the cantons of Ticino and Graubünden to support Italian and preserve Romansh as a national language.
