In the first thematic call for proposals within the Active Citizens Fund – Regional we have awarded 96 large grants and 76 small grants. Find out the details about the results of the call!
We have finalized the evaluation of project proposals within the first thematic call for proposals. 308 applications for large grants and 356 applications for small grants met eligibility criteria and were sent for content-related evaluation. According to the decision of the Executive Committee, based on the recommendation of the Expert Committee, we have awarded grants for the implementation of 172 projects: 96 large ones and 76 small ones. 10 large grants and 7 small ones are on the waiting list.
The projects from the waiting lists can be awarded funding if a grant contract is not signed for one of the approved projects from the main list. The projects from the waiting lists will be chosen within the given area of support. To determine the order of awarding funding to the waiting list, the following will be taken into consideration: first, the amount of funding made available by a contract not being signed within a given area of support (to see if it is possible to fund an entire project), then, the score received by the application, and finally, the use of funds under regional allocations.
The total amount of funding awarded for project activities is 9 681 968.38 EUR. This includes 2 818 468.86 EUR awarded for projects under Area 1: Human rights protection, 2 912 170.27 EUR for projects under Area 2: Promoting social diversity and preventing exclusion and 3 951 329.25 EUR under Area 3: Building democratic culture and civic engagement at local level. Additionally, 989 656.23 EUR was awarded for the implementation of capacity-building plans (Area 4: Supporting the development of civic sector), and a further 610 091.87 EUR was set aside for grantees whose capacity-building plans require modifications.
The decision on awarding the grants is based on expert evaluations (score) as well as the amounts allocated for grants under thematic and geographical areas. The scores and evaluation sheets can be found in the Electronic Grant Application and Management System (EGAMS).
Congratulations to all the organisations whose projects were approved for funding! In the coming days you will receive to your email (indicated in the EGAMS) all the information about further steps required to sign the grant contract.
We also encourage all Applicants, who were not successful this time, to analyse their evaluation sheets and take into account the experts’ recommendations when preparing the next proposal. The second thematic call for proposals will be announced at the beginning of 2022. Currently, there is also an ongoing call for intervention projects.
