A call for project proposals under the Spanish NGO Programme was launched last year. The call for proposal was very welcomed by the Spanish civil society, with a very high number of applications.
After the closure of the call, 236 applications were submitted for a total requested amount of almost € 27 million. The budget available for this call was €3.715.000. Despite the high quality of many applications, it was only possible to fund 16% of the applications.
NGOs in Spain can now apply for funding from the Active Citizenship programme. The priorities include active citizenship, involvement of NGOs in policy and decision making processes with local, regional and national governments, cross sectorial partnership and networks and coalitions of NGOs. The deadline for submitting applications is November 6, 2013.
