2018 State Grants Monitoring Report

2018 State Grants Monitoring Report

30 Sep 2020

Network of Centers for Civic Engagement (NCCE), funded by the EU and the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and supported by the Civil Society Institute, presents the results of the monitoring of grant funding issued by public institutions to Civil Society Organization (CSOs) in 2018.

This research examines the effectiveness, stages and general principles of the process of state grant funding. The research does not assess the content or qualitative aspects of the funded projects. On the one hand, the focus is laid on statutory procedures regarding the ways, stages and criteria creating the basis for public institutions to administer the grant competitions from budgetary resources, and on the other hand the practical experience of applicants and grantees are studied. This aims at producing recommendations based on the obtained information on how this process can be improved.

Project “Georgian Civil Society Sustainability Initiative” was developed and is implemented by the consortium, led by the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in cooperation with four Georgian Civil Society Organizations: Civil Society Institute (CSI), Center for Training and Consultancy (CTC), Center for Strategic Research and Development of Georgia (CSRDG) and Education Development and Employment Center (EDEC). The project is funded by the European Union and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung. Project aims to improve working environment for CSOs in Georgia, to support their capacity building, accountability and transparency and to strengthen their ties and cooperation with other actors.
