PL-ACTIVECITIZENS-REGIONAL: Ongoing call for intervention projects – II edition (2022-2023)
EEA Funds and Norway Grants have allocated funding for civil society organisations. EUR 59,2 mln has been set aside for supporting civil society organisations in Poland. This amount has been broken down into two parts: EUR 33,2 mln for the Active Citizens Fund – National Programme1 and EUR 26 mln for the Active Citizens Fund – Regional Programme. The Programme aims to strengthen civil society, promote active citizenship, empower vulnerable groups at risk of exclusion, and level the playing field in terms of opportunities. Furthermore, the Programme seeks to develop bilateral relations between civil society and entities based in Poland and Donor States, and to promote regional exchange and networking, with particular emphasis on sharing knowledge and good practices in strengthening civil society.
Grant competitions offer support for actions taken by Polish civil society organisations – independently or in partnership with other entities from Poland, the Donor States (Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein), the Beneficiary States eligible for EEA Funds and Norway Grants (Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia), and Poland’s non-EEA neighbours (Belarus, Ukraine, Russia). When implementing a project with a partner from a Donor State, you may apply for additional funding to cover partnership costs.
The Programme supports actions conducted by organisations based across Poland, however, project activities cannot take place in the city of Warsaw. Particular consideration will be given to projects which engage youth – in the capacity of both participants and recipients of project actions – and focus on climate change and environmental protection.
The deadline for applications is the 30th of April 2024. For more information, please visit the EEA and Norway Grants’ website.
