Portugal/ 5.1 General legislation  

5.1.3 Allocation of public funds

The legislation which addresses and defines how the ministry and cultural and arts activities are funded is to be found in two types of legal instrument:

  • those which define the organisation of the bodies responsible for drafting and applying sectoral policies; and
  • those which provide specific rules on how support to the arts is to be implemented.

The two types of legal instrument are outlined in greater detail in  chapter 5.3.
