The WeAlmaty Challenge Fund will disburse small grants to support citizen-led projects. Eligible projects must relate to the economic and social priorities for the city and must also demonstrate citizen-centred approaches. Examples of the type of project we plan to support might include local area regeneration initiatives, the creation of new business incubators, new digital technologies, public performance spaces, creative hubs and new social enterprises.

Applicants should have verifiable social and/or environmental outcomes as part of their mission. They can be officially-constituted groups or informal groups formed through the capacity building programme.
