What is a structural grant?
These are grants for general administrative costs incurred by youth NGOs. The EYF offers two types of structural grants.
Structural grants for 2 consecutive years, which are available every 2 years and one-off structural grants, non-renewable grants.
Structural grant for 2 consecutive years
These grants are available every 2 years (deadline 2015, 2017 and so on) are only accessible to international youth NGOs and international networks of youth NGOs that have received support for at least 3 international activities during the 3 previous years (EYF grant or study session in the annual programme of the European Youth Centres). However, the grant needs to be confirmed after 1 year. The grant is based on strategic long-term programme of the organisation.
The maximum grant allocated is € 25,000 per year for 2 years (i.e. a maximum of €50,000 for 2 years).
The EYF budget available is € 630,000 for each of the two years.
One-off structural grant
The one-off grant is non-renewable. It can be applied for by regional networks of youth NGOs aiming to establish a European co-ordination body. NGOs must have received support for at least 3 international activities during the 3 previous years (EYF grant or study session in the annual programme of the European Youth Centres). If an NGO receives a structural grant, admin costs cannot be included in the budget of an international activity or work plan.
The maximum grant allocated is € 10,000.
The EYF budget available is € 30,000 per year.
