      • be non-profit-making and
      • be a specific type of organisation such as :

Pursuant to Commission Implementation Rules (CIR) “Eligibility under EIDHR, no nationality restriction applies to lead applicants and, if any, to co-applicants and affiliated entities. However, where the lead applicant is not registered in the Philippines, it must act with minimum one co-applicant registered in the Philippines. and
      • be directly responsible for the preparation and management of the action with the coapplicant(s) and affiliated entity(ies), not acting as an intermediary.
    • Potential applicants may not participate in calls for proposals or be awarded grants if they are in any of the situations.
  • Co-applicant(s)
    • Co-applicants participate in designing and implementing the action, and the costs they incur are eligible in the same way as those incurred by the lead applicant.
    • Co-applicants must satisfy the eligibility criteria as applicable to the lead applicant himself.
  • Affiliated entities
    • The lead applicant and its co-applicant(s) may act with affiliated entity(ies).
    • Only the following entities may be considered as affiliated entities to the lead applicant and/or to co-applicant(s):
    • Only entities having a structural link with the applicants (i.e. the lead applicant or a co-applicant), in particular a legal or capital link.
