In 2017, non-governmental organisations altogether received € 85,26 million from ministries. In comparison to 2003, the amount is higher by 116,03 % or € 45,79 million, and in comparison to 2009, the amount is higher by 8,80 € or about € 6,89 million.
The list of ministries that were paying public funds is based on data from the Register of budget users, which mostly contains current names of budget users. If in the past, a certain field fell under various ministries (e.g. when ministries were being “split“ or abolished), transfers from previous years are displayed under the (current) name of the ministry responsible for this field. In the abovementioned Register, certain ministry constituent bodies are still kept under names of no-longer existing ministries (i.e. the funds remitted by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Spatial Planning comprise transfers by Surveying and Mapping Authority, although this is a constituent body of the Ministry of Infrastructure).
