Yes, regularly

Article16bis   of the Act of 4 July 1989 on the Limitation and Control of Election Expenses (amended in 2015).

"Art. 16. The total annual subsidy assigned to each political party complying with the provisions (of articles 15 and 15bis), is composed of the following
amount: 1) a lump sum equivalent to ((EUR 125,000)); 2) an additional sum equivalent to ((EUR 1.25)) per valid vote, being list vote or nominative vote, issued on the candidates lists acknowledged by the political party during the last general elections with a view to fully renewing the Chamber of representatives and of the Senate."


Annual funding of political parties, no mention of extra funding in relation to campaigns.
