In 2023, EED celebrates 10 years of grant-making. Over the past decade, EED has awarded nearly 2,200 grants to democracy actors and independent media. Check out our new 10th anniversary website, where you can watch our new video, learn the stories of 10 of EED's current and former partners and find out more about EED's work.
In 2021, EED supported a wide range of civil society initiatives, political activists and independent and social media in the European Neighbourhood and beyond.
EED’s activities focus primarily on the European neighbourhood (Eastern Partnership and Middle East and North Africa regions), the Western Balkans and Turkey. As far as possible, EED aims to ensure a geographical balance of engagement and funding between the regions.
Grants may also be provided for applications from countries in the area adjacent to the neighbourhood depending on needs, available funds, and political priorities.VIEW ALL INITIATIVES
