How to apply


The Community grant is based on the principle of co-funding, with other public and/or private contributions. The total project cost cannot be covered by YOUTH alone. Therefore, the contributions of organizers and/or participants can be either in cash or in kind, or a combination of both.

Calculation of the Community grant is based on actual travel and exceptional costs, on fixed amounts for all other costs relating to the project and on flat rates per participant per day. The flat rate calculation is based on the number of nights followed by a full activity day. The maximum fixed amounts and flat rates might vary depending on the Program country in which the application is submitted.

Except for travel and exceptional costs, the Community contribution to activities is not directly linked to any specific costs and consists of fixed amounts which do not have to be accounted for or justified. The beneficiaries may use the contribution as they see fit, as long as they fulfill the obligations.

This funding mechanism is designed to help applicants estimate the size of the grant expected and facilitate realistic planning of the activity. A detailed description of the objectives and the type of related activities for which the grant will be used must be provided in the application. This will be one of the most important elements to be examined in selecting projects.

Activities 1-6

These activities are co financed on the basis of fixed amounts and flat rates, as they are characterized by a limited duration and a limited number of participants. These fixed amounts and flat rates are maximum amounts and may be adjusted according to national contexts (please contact your National Agency for details).

Activities 7-9

For these activities, YOUTH program funding is based on actual costs and should not exceed 50 % of the total project cost.
