The Financial Mechanism Office (FMO) is the secretariat of the EEA Grants and Norway Grants, and is affiliated to the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) in Brussels. The FMO reports to the three Donor States (Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) through the EEA Financial Mechanism Committee (FMC) for the EEA Grants and through the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (NMFA) for the Norway Grants.
