The project will provide financial resources i.e. grants to develop capacities and enable CSOs to contribute to the implementation of certain actions derived from the developed Local Culture Strategy. The capacity building activities will focus the grantees’attention to networking, public dialogue, media relations, advocacy and financial management.
The abovementioned will contribute to CSOs sustainability and will enhance the cooperation between the CSOs and the local self – government.
In cooperation with the local self-government, following good governance principles, detailed criteria for selection of the grantees will be jointly developed. The registered CSOs will be eligible for the grant scheme through a public call to support small innovative cultural projects. At least 9 projects (3 per municipality) will be supported and implemented through the grant scheme.
