The local government has been implementing the project competition since 2010, in which funding is granted to educational institutions for ensuring the acquisition of the Latvian language for adult residents of Rīga. Since 2010, more than 14,000 Rīga inhabitants have completed the course.
This year, the competition supports four projects for a total of €98,605.44.
