Active Citizens Fund has been launched in Lithuania

On 23 October 2019, the Active Citizens Fund (ACF) in Lithuania financed by the EEA Grants was launched. In 2019-2024 the ACF will allocate EUR 9 million to the strengthening of civil society and empowering vulnerable groups.

Lithuanian non-governmental organisations will have an opportunity to submit applications and receive funding for their activities in order to implement changes in the following areas: citizen participation in civic activities, civil society watchdog/advocacy of the public authorities role, support for human rights, empowerment of vulnerable groups, capacity building and sustainability of civil society. Funding of EUR 1 000–150 000 (depending on the scope or duration of the project) will be granted to the projects implemented in these areas.

Its activities in Lithuania will be administered by the consortium of non-governmental organizations – Open Lithuania Foundation, OSFL Projects, and Geri Norai LT.
