Grants Programs—Overview

Beginning with the first Small Grants dead­line in 2014 (March 1, 2014), some basic con­di­tions within the Small, Standard, and Strategic Grants (as well as in other grant pro­grams) change. We kindly request that all applicants—especially those who are re-applying—carefully read the new rules (rules for Small, Standard and Strategic Grants), as well as the Grant Guidelines. Grant projects sub­mit­ted in 2013 and ear­lier fol­low the rules valid at the time of their sub­mis­sion. Following are the main changes in the grant process and an overview of the prin­ci­pal bud­getary lim­i­ta­tions in each program:

  • the fund can cover between 70–100% of total project costs 
  • over­head costs raised to 15% of total granted amount in most programs
  • up to 7% of granted sums can be used for tan­gi­ble and intan­gi­ble assets in some programs
  • lim­its of cash trans­ac­tions were raised (now between 10–50% depend­ing on program)
