CALL FOR APPLICATION FOR URGENT GRANTS
Engagement for Joint Action (EJA Kosovo) is a KCSF program that supports civil society initiatives through grants and capacity building with the overall aim to contribute to a democratic and inclusive society in Kosovo, on its path towards integration into the European Union.
Centering citizen engagement and participation throughout the work of civil society, EJA Kosovo aims to contribute towards two main objectives where: (a) civil society uses and claims spaces for participation in shaping public affairs and (b) civil society organizations have strengthened ties to their constituents and improved accountability and transparency towards the wider public and their constituents.
Urgent Grants offer the opportunity for quick and timely interventions by civil society to respond to identified issues that contribute towards the objectives of EJA Kosovo. It enables various actors to identify opportunities for contribution and quick reaction for which there is no sufficient time to apply and react through other instruments and regular calls such as project grants.
