Call for full proposals: Cooperative grants, Belarus and Moldova

Announcement date: April 4, 2013 
Full proposal submission deadline: 17:00, May 27, 2013

The REC is offering cooperative grants to facilitate international cooperation between CSOs from Belarus and Moldova and CSOs from neighbouring Eastern Partnership (EaP), European Neighbourhood Partnership Instrument (ENPI-East) countries and other EU member states, and to enable them to work together to promote sustainable development, environmental democracy and environmental protection. The selection process for cooperative grants will run from March 2013 to June 2013.

The overall budget for the cooperative grant scheme is EUR 310,000. Project proposals are currently invited for cooperative grants of up to EUR 40,000 for projects involving CSOs from Belarus and Moldova. Projects with a budget of up to EUR 50,000 should involve, in addition to CSOs from Moldova and Belarus, CSOs from other countries as project partners (non-direct SECTOR beneficiaries). Funding under the SECTOR cooperative grants programme will be directed only to CSOs from Belarus and Moldova.

If you are interested in participating in the programme, please read through the call and submit your application by 17:00 on May 27, 2013, by e-mail to sector.grants@rec.org or by uploading to http://sector.rec.org/index.php?page=grants-programmes.

Prior to the submission of full project proposals, CSOs are invited to send the REC a profile that will assist applicants under the SECTOR cooperative grants programme in the identification of partners and the creation of working contacts for the preparation of full project proposals. The REC will collect the CSO profiles and create a searchable database of contacts and project topics that will be shared with all interested CSOs on request. In the event that many CSOs indicate an interest in meeting CSOs from the other country, the REC will organise an information exchange meeting.

To submit your profile, please fill in the CSO profile form provided and submit by 17:00 on April 15, 2013,  to sector.grants@rec.org.

In addition, the REC has created a closed discussion group on cooperative grants in Belarus and Moldova on Facebook to assist you further with the identification of partners and project topics. If you are interested in joining the group, please go to: http://www.facebook.com/groups/156876081139897/
