  • Inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities (Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine);
  • Enhancing youth participation at local, regional and national levels (Armenia, Moldova)
  • Youth participation in the recovery of Ukraine (Ukraine ).

The grant amount shall not exceed €15,000 per grant project.
