  • Associations that have been established in Luxembourg City for at least one year and are recognised by the College of Aldermen may receive a general grant. They are required to submit an annual report. The following factors are taken into account in calculating the amount of this grant:
    • the number of active members and association activities;
    • the number of activities for young people and the elderly;
    • the expenses related to these activities;
    • material support and other services received from the City;
    • cash flow;
    • the growth of the association compared to previous years.
  • One-time grants are awarded for events organised in Luxembourg City that are of a certain size and hold particular relevance for the City. Applications for one-time grants must include a detailed statement of revenue and expenditure.
  • Special grants are awarded to associations and companies whose activity has been recognised as being charitable by the College of Aldermen.

Applications should be sent to: Collège des bourgmestre et échevins, L-2090 Luxembourg.
