Deadline: 5 September 2017

The European Union (EU) is currently accepting proposals from eligible organisations for a program entitled “Civil Society Facility and Media action for Bosnia and Herzegovina 2016-2017” to support the involvement of civil society in the EU integration process in Bosnia and Herzegovina including in the formulation, implementation and monitoring of sector strategies for EU financial assistance and influence policy, decision-making processes and legislation enacting in the areas critical for EU integration.

Objectives

  • Lots 1-6: Support CSOs networks in various areas (social inclusion, education, social entrepreneurship, environment and climate change, youth, and anti-corruption). This assistance will address the problem of weak sector-based cooperation among CSOs and will support CSOs in fighting corruption in BiH. It will be implemented through a grant scheme providing support to CSOs to contribute to social development in particular sectors.
  • Lot 7: Support media freedoms and media integrity. This assistance will address the problem of limited media freedoms as well as endangered journalists’ independence and integrity. It will be implemented through grant support to media associations.
  • Lot 8: Support the Resource Centre. This assistance will address the problem of low capacity of CSOs helping them to become more capable, transparent and accountable. Capacities of CSOs in BiH, particularly at local level, will be increased by providing direct support to the Resource Centre, which is expected to replace TACSO after September 2017.
