Deadline 1 October (midnight CET)

Cut-off dates for pilot activities.

Please check the calendar for dates concerning the decision-making process for grant applications on pilot activities. There are no fixed deadlines to send an application, however a system of cut-off dates was decided by the Programming Committee on Youth in December 2016 to allow for sufficient time for assessment, two-way communication and decision-making. Keeping that in mind, the application must always be submitted at least 3 months before the start date of the project.

The next cut-off date for pilot activity applications is 23 June 2019 (midnight Strasbourg Time).

The last cut-off date for Pilot Activities taking place in 2019 will be 1 September 2019.


  • The next deadline for a 2-year structural grant is 1 October 2019, for the years 2020-2021.
  • The EYF will not accept any new NGO registrations 2 weeks before the deadlines of April and October.
  • More information on future cut-off dates to submit a pilot activity grant application will be published on the EYF website depending on the budgetary situation.

Grant beneficiaries must

  • use the Council of Europe logo* and the visual identity of the EYF on any publication, material, website
  • mention the support of the EYF
