Moldova: M4EG launches grant competition to support local authorities’ crisis response efforts

Local authorities from Moldova, which are members of the EU-funded Mayors for Economic Growth (M4EG) initiative, can benefit from grants awarded by the European Union under a call to support the immediate response and long-term recovery of Moldovan local public authorities, including support to Ukrainian refugees, throughout 2022-2023. 

Under this call, two types of projects will receive funding:

  1. Response and immediate recovery projects that intend to support the immediate needs of people (IDPs and refugees) whose houses, jobs and businesses were destroyed or affected by the war, and small-scale restoration of infrastructure and services. Funding must fall between €30,000 and €50,000 (no co-financing required).
  2. Projects aiming to support local authorities impacted by the war to get on track with their sustainable development pathways and lay foundations for economic recovery, future sustainable growth and modernisation of cities and communities. Funding range for each proposal: €70,000-100,000 (at least 20% co-financing required). 

Applications are accepted only through an online form in Romanian or Russian.

The deadline for applications is 23 December.

This call is being carried out under the Crisis Response and Renewal programme in Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova with a budget of €1.8 million, announced on 30 November.
