The UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues is an advisory body to the Economic and Social Council, with a mandate to discuss indigenous issues.

Priority will be given to projects focusing on the programme of action of the second decade under the broad mandated areas of the forum, namely: Culture, Education, Health, Human rights, Environment, and Social and Economic development.

All projects should be of direct benefit to indigenous peoples. Local, national and regional indigenous people’s organisations, women’s indigenous organisations and indigenous youth organisations are eligible to apply.

Applications may be submitted in English, French, Spanish or Russian. Grants are worth up to US$10,000 over a one-year period.

This call is repeated once a year.
