EU to provide grants for non-profit organisations in Georgia

The European Union (EU) has announced a call for proposals for non-profit organisations in Georgia, including civil society organisations, local authorities, educational institutions, media and public sector operators, to further strengthen civil society and promote human rights and fundamental freedoms.

This call for proposals aims to promote ethnic minorities’ empowerment, to improve access to social services for vulnerable people, to combat violence against women and girls, as well as domestic violence, to increase human security and safety (crime prevention through addressing ‘criminal mentality’, violent extremism, behavioural disorders and/or mental healthcare needs among children and youth, and better treatment for drug users), and to strengthen the accountability of the security sector.

The overall indicative amount made available under this call for proposals is €7.8 million. Any grant requested under this call for proposals must not exceed a maximum amount of €1-1.5 million depending on the lot. Maximum percentage of co-financing of the selected projects is 95%.
