Applications for Financial Grants of Czech compatriot organizations in 2022

We are pleased to support dozens of projects of Czech compatriot organizations in the jurisdiction of the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Chicago every year.

We thank to all Czech heritage associations, American Sokol and Czech schools for their efforts to enhance Czech language and culture in the United States. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic will reward the grants in 2022 as well. The Czech government will prefer to support concrete and traditional cultural and educational activities of organizations over maintenance and repairs of buildings.
