• Projects must develop meaningful cooperation and ensure the active involvement of at least 3 V4 countries and 1 entity from the Eastern Partnership region (EaP) or the Western Balkans countries (WB) at minimum (3xV4 + 1xEaP/WB format). However, if the applicant is from one of the EaP or WB countries, it is enough to involve two V4 countries in the project consortium, if another EaP/WB country is also involved (2xV4 + 2xEaP/WB format).

  • EXCEPTION from the partnership rules for Ukrainian entities:
    - applicants can apply for the second call by June 1, 2024
    with 2 partners from a different V4 country each without involving another country from the EaP or WB region (1xUA + 2xV4 format)

  • Visegrad+ Grants should be implemented in the EaP or WBs region, and/or have a strong impact on local communities in at least one of those countries

  • Maximum duration of project implementation is 18 months

  • Grants cover up to 100% of project budget with maximum 15% of the requested sum for overheads

  • Projects must clearly address one of the objectives of the program´s seven focus areas

Please note that simply having a project partner/applicant from the EaP or WB region does not automatically make an application qualify for a Visegrad+ Grant!

All information on conditions and criteria can be found in the advanced Grant Guidelines.

You can submit your project proposals via My Visegrad during the submission period which opens 30 days before the deadline—February 1, June 1, October 1 at 12.00 PM (noon).

Consulting your project proposal is possible via e-mail, phone, or online and in-person meetings based on appointments. A maximum of two consultations can be provided per project idea. The consultations will be based on draft project proposals that must be sent to the Fund's employee providing the consultation ahead of time. We recommend that the project idea is already in a more developed stage when requesting a consultation. The draft proposal should include the following: the main goal of the project with a proposed solution, the planned activities, the list of project partners, target groups, and the estimated budget.

Any consultation can take place no later than 14 days before the given application deadline. Please do not wait to book your consultation until the last moment and request a consultation in advance.
