Applications to apply for a grant to support Healthy Lungs for Life activities are open!

European Lung Foundation (ELF) offers grants to support Healthy Lungs for Life activities.

Not-for-profit organisations, patient groups and healthcare professionals can apply for a grant of up to €1,000 to support events and activities that meet one or more of the aims of the Healthy Lungs for Life campaign.

  • Increase knowledge of the impact of poor air quality on lung health and the actions that everyone can take to reduce air pollution and avoid exposure
  • Highlight the benefits of quitting smoking
  • Increase knowledge of the importance of physical activity for lung health
  • Raise awareness of vaccination to prevent lung infections

Applications are now open and will stay open, so you can apply for a grant at any time. Each year, there will be two cut off dates:

  • 28 February
  • 31 July (for the 2021 round, this has been extended to 8 August)

At each cut-off date, the ELF team will collect all applications submitted since the previous cut-off date, anonymise them and send them to the Healthy Lungs for Life team for judging. The applications that the team assess to have the most impact will be offered a grant.

We encourage applicants to link activities to awareness days related to their chosen topics.

Before you apply, please read the Application Criteria and the Terms & Conditions.
