About the NGO Programme

The EEA Grants and Norway Grants is the contribution of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway to reducing economic and social disparities and to strengthening bilateral relations with 15 EU countries in Central and Southern Europe. A specific Programme area within the EEA FM has been earmarked to provide flexible and accessible funding to eligible NGOs, with the aim to foster an enabling environment for the sector, strengthen its capacity and enhance its contribution to social justice, democracy and sustainable development.


The Financial Mechanism Office (FMO), which administratively forms part of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and acts as Secretariat for the EEA FM, has been entrusted with the operation of the NGO programme in Slovenia. FMO has selected Regional environmental center for Central and Eastern Europe (REC) and Center for information service, Co-operation and Development of NGOs (CNVOS) as fund operators to develop and manage the NGO programme in Slovenia on its behalf.


The total amount of funding available for the NGO programme in Slovenia is € 1.875.000, out of which € 1.593.750 is dedicated to the fund for NGOs projects. In the scope of the call for proposals for medium and large projects € 1.275.000 is available, in the scope of the call for proposals for small projects, which will be published in January 2014, additional € 318.750  is available.


The overall objective of the NGO Programme in Slovenia is to strengthen civil society development and enhance contribution to social justice, democracy and sustainable development.
