The same funding criteria apply across all areas that qualify for funding. Specific funding is available for areas covered by our own projects (Double, Migros Culture Percentage Story Lab, m2act, m4music, Sparx).

The Federation of Migros Cooperatives Migros Culture Percentage focuses the provision of funding on the artistic creativity phase (ideation / diffusion) and no longer offers specific funding by area (except for our own projects). 
- Art spaces: Applications may be submitted for art spaces. Art spaces may submit applications for annual programmes in the diffusion phase if they are of nationwide interest.
- Publications: Publications are regarded as production and are not supported by the Federation of Migros Cooperatives Migros Culture Percentage. Publications are supported by some regional Migros cooperatives. 
- Video clips: Video clips are regarded as production and do not receive support from the Federation of Migros Cooperatives Migros Culture Percentage.
- Literary journals: Applications that involve running or production costs cannot be considered. Our funding focuses on meeting salary costs.
