The program is interested in projects promoting:
- Civic dialogue
- Public advocacy
- Strengthening of local communities
- Local self-government
- Gender equality
- Market reforms
- Integration of underserviced groups of the population
- Environmental awareness and ecological issues
Proposals that reach the broadest number of users, involve networking with other organizations, focus on activities in the regions, and include funding from other sources will have a strong advantage.
Focus / Priorities
- The Small Grants Program only funds proposals that contain accurate and well-developed implementation plans and clear explanations of how the project goals will be achieved, where those goals address the Program’s themes and priorities.
- The Program prefers to support complete projects instead of individual activities such as one-time conferences, publications, or round tables. A complete project involves a sequence of coherent events, logically interwoven and linked in time, designed to achieve specific goals within a particular time frame, focusing on target audiences, and leading to concrete and measurable results that will directly benefit the local community.
- The time frame for the project should be appropriate to the project activities and should not exceed 12 months.
- Project proposals should be submitted on the standardized application form and be modest in size (up to 6 pages in Times New Roman font 12).
The maximum grant amount is $20,000
- Belarusian registered NGOs.
- Applications from governmental, international, political party organizations or religious organizations will not be considered.
- Projects can only be submitted by organizations, not by individuals.
