funding

Do you have a great project idea, but no resources? The House of Resources project fund provides money for small projects that promote the integration of people living in Berlin who have a migration or refugee background. If you have never applied for funding before, our project fund is the perfect place to start. We will help you every step of the way, from the submission of your application form to the preparation of your project’s final financial statement. You’ll gain valuable knowledge and experience that will enable you to apply for larger grants in the future.
We provide up to € 1,425 for projects that…

  • promote integration
  • deepen mutual understanding between different social groups
  • have a high level of volunteer involvement
  • are based in Berlin and carry out activities in Berlin

Organisations are required to attend a House of Resources application workshop before they can submit a funding application.

Funding of specific measures

In addition to project funding, House of Resources also provides money for specific measures.

These measures could include the printing costs for a flyer, a website design, the fees involved with registering a new association, or the cost of hiring a trainer to host a workshop for your organisation’s volunteers.

We cannot fund any specific measures that are part of a larger project. The money cannot be used to purchase assets or equipment (acquisitions).

Specific measures can only cost a few hundred euros and the funding must be spent shortly after the measure is approved.

More detailed information about funding for specific measures is available here in German.

Please use this application form: “Short application for the funding of a specific measure”. (only available in German).

If you are interested, please get in touch with the House of Resources team via email or call (030) 23989391.
