Youth Solutions Micro-Grant 2023
Online and in-person
Application deadline: August 19, 2023
Young people are uniquely placed to become effective agents of change within their communities. Recognizing this potential, the Youth Solutions Micro-Grant will support the youth to start, replicate, or scale up their solutions to housing and urban challenges in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Youth Solutions Micro-Grant will:
- Harness youth solutions through mentorship from international experts to strengthen their ideas;
- Provide seed funding of US$2,000 to five (5) youth solutions that promote a more innovative, inclusive, and collaborative housing ecosystem for sustainable urban development;
- Invite 10 youth-led organizations to be part of the Youth Assembly Suwon, South Korea to network and showcase their solutions to actors in the housing and urban sectors across the Asia-Pacific region.
This micro-grant will only support solutions that are developed and managed by the youth for the benefit of the community where they operate. The age definition used by Habitat for Humanity to characterize youth is a person who is between 18 and 30 years old.
