IRIS Network awarded 14 small grants under CfP “Enhancing resilience of Civil Society Organizations (CSO)” in the scope of the project „IRIS NETWORKing – CSOs for protection sensitive migration management“. IRIS network Project Evaluation Committee decided to support 14 out of 32 received applications in 5 project countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia.
Implementation of all supported projects starts on 5th March 2021 with a duration of two months. The grants aim to support IRIS members in capacity-building actions for the purpose of enhancing the organization’s abilities to develop adequate services, capabilities, and skills as a response to the pandemic crisis.
As IRIS Network members are facing unprecedented challenges from COVID-19 and the strain on the services and resources they provide is tremendous, this Grant Scheme is taking proactive steps to protect the Network members, support their ongoing activities and assist them to cope with current hardships as much as possible. Project proposals shall aim to produce an added value to the “IRIS Networking” project’s efforts in this domain.
Iris network would like to congratulate all of its member organizations who received grants, but also to thank all applicants who sent us their proposals.
