About this grant

The goal of the project is to support public participation in decisionmaking on environmental issues in Belarus and to promote environmental protection by creating a base of knowledge and advocacy skills among nonprofits. Through its representative office in Minsk, ISAR awards small grants ranging from several hundred to several thousand dollars to grassroots, Belarusian groups working to protect the environment and people’s right to a safe and healthy environment. This grant increase will enable ISAR’s Minsk office to build its institutional capacity as a grantmaker and increase the number of projects it supports.
