Small Grants Scheme for heritage organisations operating in EU neighbouring countries

HomepageSmall Grants Scheme for heritage organisations operating in EU neighbouring countries

European Heritage Hub has just opened call for proposals to Small Grants Scheme. It finances projects led by civil society organisations which protect cultural heritage in EU neighbouring countries. If you are such an organisation registered in Ukraine or based in one of other ten eligible countries, we encourage you to apply.

The European Heritage Hub Small Grants Scheme is open to civil society organisations based in the following 11 countries: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Kosovo*, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia and Ukraine.

The Scheme aims to encourage and empower heritage stakeholders from the above-mentioned countries to become active protagonists of the wider European heritage movement. The heritage of these countries requires special care due to current armed conflicts, post-conflict challenges or possible future conflicts.

Submitted projects should contribute to the implementation of the following programme objectives:
– building the capacity of civil society;
– enhancing the key role of cultural heritage for the Triple Transformation of our society, economy and environment (green, digital and social);
– building peace, stability, reconciliation, intercultural and interreligious dialogue through heritage activities.

The Small Grants Scheme will finance three types of projects:
– small projects – grants ranging from 2,000 to 10,000 EUR
– medium projects – grants ranging from 10,000 to 30,000 EUR
– large projects – grants ranging from 30,000 to 50,000 EUR
