The EU-funded ‘COVID-19: Civil Society Resilience and Sustainability’ project has launched a call for proposals in Moldova, aimed at local independent media outlets and CSOs to raise the awareness of local communities about the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts.
Grants will be given to fund projects that focus on countering disinformation on the health risks related to COVID-19 and the vaccination, and inform the local population, mainly vulnerable groups, about government actions. The type and amount of support will vary depending on the size, expected impact and reach of the proposed content/media output/campaign. Grants are up to €7,000.
Joint applications submitted by CSOs and media outlet(s) will be prioritised. Additionally, applications that target citizens in the regions or vulnerable groups and those disproportionately affected by the pandemic will be prioritised.
The deadline to apply is October 4, 2021.
