General information

It would be a shame if you invest your time in an application that does not meet our criteria. We therefore ask you to make sure that:

  • You have read the criteria
  • Your project is not a humanitarian and/or health related project
  • Your project is not an emergency aid project
  • Your project is not an education focussed project nor does it solely focus on awareness.

Please note that we get together every month except for the month of August. There is therefore no deadline to (y)our application process. But do make sure to file the application in time.

For your convenience we also provide our application form as a downloadable Word document. If you fill in the offline form, please email it to project@hetactiefonds.nl.

Urgent application

Are you organising an action to draw attention to an urgent issue? Or to react to sudden political or societal developments? And weren’t you able to apply for funding sooner because your action has to be organised immediately? In that case we can treat your application as an urgent application. With an urgent application you can request an amount up to 250 euros. A decision concerning your request will be made within days. Please note: this option is specifically meant for unforeseen situations, not for last minute funding for actions that are already prepared.
