Closing Date: April 15,2013.
UN-Habitat on Tuesday launched a call for applications for the Urban Youth Fund supports the Millennium Development Goals and the UN-Habitat agenda for sustainable and equitable urban development. Grants are up to US$25 thousand for solutions to job creation, good governance, adequate shelter, and secure tenure. Past projects include several in urban tree planting, waste clean-up and recycling, urban gardens, and other "green" topics.

Indeed, of the one billion slum dwellers in the world today, it is estimated that more than 70% are under the age of 30. These young people have few resources available to improve their own living. Interestingly though, there are many youth-led initiatives in slums and squatter settlements around the world that require support in their efforts to transform their communities. This has led UN-Habitat to reconsider the youth as drivers for change. Through this Fund, UN-Habitat embraces the belief that youth are a solution for sustainable urban development.

The agency invites young people based in cities or towns from the developing world to apply for grants from the Fund.
