COVID-19 Re-granting projects

(Financial Support to Third Parties – FSTP)

Civil society organisations are at the forefront of efforts to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Eastern Partnership region. In a crisis which has put the crisis management capacities of the EaP governments to the test, CSOs have stepped up to the plate, mobilising in defence of fundamental rights and freedoms, and in support of vulnerable groups and the economy.

To respond to the current situation the EaP CSF invites short-term project proposals from its member organisations from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine aimed at addressing the needs of the vulnerable population exacerbated by COVID-19 pandemic and strengthening the capacities of the CSOs in addressing those needs.

On the course of the call for applications for COVID-19 Re-granting projects in 2020 the Secretariat received 81 proposals, out of which 71 passed the eligibility screening. All eligible proposals were reviewd by the Selection Committe and 23 projects were selected to start their implementation. Below you can learn more about each project.
