Apply for the Youth Fund: COVID-19 Action

If you are a youth organisation taking action against COVID19, ActionAid wants to support you.

Application Deadline: Sunday, 16th August.

The Youth Fund is a new fund designed by young people to support youth action around the world. The succesful applicants will be selected by our Youth Compact Champions; a panel of young people with a wealth of experience. Funding grants of up to US$5,000 are available.

To be eligible for funding you must be a registered youth-led organisation, with a bank account, running an existing initiative responding to the COVID19 pandemic and its impact on communities in one or more of the countries listed below. All action must last no longer than 2 months and be completed by the 30th November. We are particularly interested in projects that are supporting vulnerable and marginalised groups or those that are harder to reach.
