Additional criteria for urgent applications

In some cases it is not possible to plan your protest weeks in advance, because of sudden political or societal developments. Therefore it is possible for us to treat your application as urgent, in which case we will make a decision within days. For urgent applications, we handle the following criteria:

  •  Your project responds to a sudden political or societal event and is therefore time-bound.
  • The protest has not been planned yet; this option is specifically meant for unforeseen situations, not for last minute funding of activities that are already prepared.
  • The requested amount does not exceed €250.

Het Actiefonds only supports specific protests and campaigns. Those can be part of lengthy project, but we do not give ongoing support.
The maximum grant size is €2,500 per project. Our average grant size is between €750 and €2,000.

We get together for the decision-making process every month. This means that there is no deadline for handing in your application. But do make sure to file the application at least a month before your protest takes place. In case it is not possible to plan the protest weeks in advance because it responds to un unforeseen situation, we can treat your proposal with urgency.
