Funding for international and sustainable projects available

Promotion of projects in development education and for the implementation of Agenda 2030. Send your application until May 14 2021.

The City Council of Bonn provides organizations with funding for development education work and the strengthening of Bonn's project partnerships and for the implementation of Agenda 2030. The content of this funding programme is based on "Bonn's strategy for the future as an international political location", which the Council adopted on 30 January 2014. The funds are aimed particularly at smaller organizations or initiatives based in Bonn.

The grant for a "Project for Development Education and Strengthening of Bonn's Project Partnerships" is a maximum of 3,500 euros per measure, and for a "Project for the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda" a maximum of 2,000 euros per measure.

With this call, the entire funding for the year 2021 will be awarded. The call is subject to the availability of budgetary funds. Due to special circumstances, it is possible that the project duration can be set until 30 April 2022. All events must have been completed by this date.

Applications may be submitted until May 14, 2021. The postmark received by the City of Bonn is valid.   Please note that applications submitted too late cannot be considered. Sending the application on the last day of the deadline is therefore not sufficient.

Further information and the associated press release can be found  here. (opens in a new tab)

The Committee for Europe, International Affairs, Science, Business and Labor is expected to decide on the allocation of funds at its meeting on August 26, 2021. Projects that are initiated before this date are not eligible for funding.
