What we Do?

The Regional Grant Scheme co-funded by the European Union and the Western Balkans Fund empowers civil society and grassroots organizations that participate in regional coordination projects in many fields, including sustainable development, culture, education, and many cross-cutting issues.

The video at your right features the 30 winning projects of the first co-funded Call for Proposals, with details about the project, the lead applicant, and the partners. In this Call for Proposals, we received 207 eligible projects, from more than 750 civil society organisations and other stakeholders. 

400.000 EUR is the amount at disposal of the winning projects of the First co-funded Call for Proposals. However, the amount requested from the applicants (2.8 million Euros) surpasses the actual budget by seven times. Because of the great interest at our grants, WBF aims to increase further the overall budget and number of supported projects in the near future.
