FIAPO, as part of its Living Free programme, provides grants to people, to fund innovative ideas or to start outreach in a city. It takes us a minimum of 10 days to process the grant from the date of reception of the application. Due to finite resources, typical awards range from Rs.500-2000, with a maximum of Rs.3000 for a single outreach event. Applications for amounts larger than Rs 3000 are only applicable forlarger events like vegan festivals and applicants are encouraged to seek advice from regional FIAPO staff before applying. Grant applications will only be accepted prior to the event.
Anyone looking to start or spread vegan advocacy can apply for these grants –please read the instructions below to learn about our eligibility criteria: -

- Applications that do not follow these guidelines or do not fit the application criteria are rejected.
- Applications are accepted from all organisations and individuals, but a strong preference would be given toFIAPO community leaders. (Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org you would like to become one)
