ARAU’s resources are paid for by its members’ subscriptions, donations and profits from the sale of publications and its guided tours.
ARAU has been recognised by the French Language Community since 1976 and since 1 January 2007 under the renewed Royal Decree of 17 July 2003 on the support of associations involved in permanent education. This recognition provides a five-year grant covering 2017-2021.
ARAU also receives an annual grant of €5,000 from the “Commission communautaire française” (COCOF) to cover its main permanent education activity, namely the “Urban Planning School”. For more information, please refer to the ARAU 2019 Activity Report.
