UCB’s Community Health Fund Applications are Open for Organizations Supporting the Mental Health of Young People and those Displaced Due to Conflict

The UCB Community Health Fund supports vulnerable young people across the globe. This year the Fund is accepting new grant requests from non-profit organizations working to help people between the ages of 15 - 24 with mental health disorders or young people who have been displaced due to conflict situations. 

The physical, social, and psychological well-being of people has been impacted around the world. After two years of challenging events including a global pandemic, climate change, racism, inequality, and heightened geopolitical tensions, many young people are facing additional insecurity.

Our collective responsibility to society has never been greater. The UCB Community Health Fund will support impact-driven organizations with a total of €2 million ($2.4 million) in grants this year.
