Subsidization Policy


In order to subsidize local governments to establish perpetual development footholds for Hakka culture and form a Hakka culture network, the HAC drew up Rules Governing HAC Subsidization of Local Governments to Build and Repair Hakka Cultural Facilities on April 18, 2003. The HAC has since subsidized local governments including the Taoyuan County Government to build and repair 18 Hakka cultural facilities.

The preservation of Hakka culture relies not just on the building of facilities. The question of how to effectively pool resources and highlight the characteristics of Hakka society, environment, ecology, folk culture, and industries to reinvigorate Hakka villages and improve living quality is crucial. Thus, the HAC revised the Rules Governing HAC Subsidization of Local Governments to Promote Hakka Cultural Living Environment in 2004 in an active effort to assist local governments in preserving Hakka villages, improving the environment in community and public living spaces, building unique features as local cultural assets, and encouraging residents to participate in public affairs. Starting in 2005, the Preparatory Office of the Taiwan Hakka Cultural Center of the HAC is charged with these tasks.

The Rules Governing Supervision of Hakka Cultural Living Environment Building Plan was established to oversee progress and spending of subsidized programs. The List of Experts and Academics Recommended to Promote the Building of Hakka Cultural Living Environment has been prepared to assist local governments in reviewing proposals, selecting suppliers, and conducting surveys.
