About grants

As of 2018 the Swedish Gender Equality Agency is distributing funds to the civil society in the form of support for organisations, projects and international cooperation. All the support we distribute is given on behalf of the Swedish government. The grants were previously distributed by the Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil Society.

We distribute grants to projects that work to combat discrimination and promote equality.

Women’s organisations

This grant is intended to help women’s organisations to organise to monitor their rights and promote their demands. It is intended to promote women’s participation in the democratic process and in society.

Gender equality projects

Grants to organisations and foundations to promote equality between women and men.

Only Swedish municipalities, Swedish organisations and Swedish foundations are eligible for financial support from the Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil Society.
