Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum

Regranting 2015

In 2015 the EaP CSF Secretariat for the first time launched a call for proposals in the framework of the new regranting scheme to sub-grant projects with an Eastern Partnership regional dimension that would contribute to the mission and objectives of the EaP CSF. This call aimed to support the work of the five thematic Working Groups. The regranting scheme will see new editions in 2016 and 2017.

Last year the Secretariat received 42 proposals, out of which 31 passed the eligibility screening. The majority of the proposals were submitted under the priorities of the Working Group 1 “Democracy, Human Rights, Good Governance & Stability” and Working Group 4 “Contacts between People”.

The Selection Panel decided to provide funding for 15 projects following the implementation of specific recommendations communicated to the applicants. Most of the selected projects cover more than three Eastern Partnership countries.

The selection process included:

  • selection of proposals that should be potentially supported based on the rating and comments of the Selection Panel’s individual members
  • discussion of each proposal and the Selection Panel agreement on recommendations, as well as on the grants amounts

The level of participation was high with many applications of good quality and with the requested amount that exceeded several times the total budget available for this scheme.
