[Call for Proposals] On protecting and promoting Union Values

Deadline for applications: 29 March 2022

The objective of this call for proposals is to protect, promote and raise awareness of EU fundamental rights and values by supporting local, regional and/or national civil society organisations (CSOs) and increasing their capacity thereby also strengthening the effective application of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and the respect of the rule of law and of democracy in the EU.

The aim is to select and support a limited number of intermediaries in the greatest number of Member States, capable of building the capacities of a large number of civil society organisations active at local, regional and/or national level in the fields covered by the CERV programme, including through providing them with financial support.

Proposals must include both categories of activities:

  • Financial support to third parties (CSOs) by intermediaries
  • Capacity building for CSOs

‚ÄčIntermediaries should give priority to small, remote and rural based organisations which tend to have more limited capacity and funding sources.

Only activities complying with and promoting the principles of the rule of law, fundamental rights and democracy may be funded.
