Call for Applications for Funding of Development Policy Projects

In 2021, the City of Bonn will again award funding for projects that contribute to development education and strengthen Bonn's project partnerships. The deadline for applications is Friday, May 14, 2021.

Funding is aimed in particular at smaller organizations or initiatives based in Bonn. It is also possible to apply with projects that serve to implement Agenda 2030 and the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The postmark received by the City of Bonn is considered as the valid date for the deadline. 

The Committee for Europe, International Affairs, Science, Economics and Labor is expected to decide on the allocation of funds at its meeting on Thursday, August 26, 2021. Projects started beforehand or completed after April 30, 2022 are not eligible for funding.
