This Call for proposals has been designed to provide financial support for Croatian CSOs active in one (or more) of the Programme Priority Areas

  • Democracy, active citizenship, good governance and transparency,
  • Human rights and equal treatment through combating any discrimination on the grounds of racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation or gender identity,
  • Social justice and inclusion of vulnerable groups,
  • Gender equality and gender-based violence,
  • Environment and climate change.

and whose social impact supported by the Call will contribute to at least one of the Programme Outcomes:

  • Strengthened civil society watchdog/advocacy role;
  • Increased support for human rights, rule of law and good governance;
  • Strengthened democratic culture and civic awareness and engagement;

The main purpose of the Ad-hoc Action Call is to support civil society organisations and civic initiatives when urgent responses are needed either to tackle immediate challenges (e.g., pressures on civic space and incidences of hate speech) or to seize very specific windows of opportunity for influencing public opinion and policy process through various forms of citizen participation and public action including campaigning and advocacy, legal, communicational or other.

Under the Call for Ad-hoc Action projects, the Programme will support immediate civic action as a rapid response to an urgent situation or identified problems, within the Programme’s Priority Areas (see section Focus of the call, page 10) that affect citizens and/or the CSOs.

Proposed actions need to justify the need for a rapid response and the organizers’ ability to react quickly, in a way that open avenues for the solution to the identified problem, threat or opportunity arising in the urgent situation.

Under this Call, each individual organization can receive the maximum of 3 grants in the role of lead applicant. There is no limitation on the number of grants received in the role of project partner.
