In 2018 German municipalities and municipal associations will once again be able to apply for a grant for development projects with their partner municipalities in the Global South.
The size of the grant will depend on the nature and scope of the project. It will usually be between EUR 20,000 and EUR 250,000. In justified exceptional circumstances a grant of up to EUR 500,000 may be awarded if the partners can demonstrate that they have previously worked together intensively in a particular thematic area. Priority will be attached to using the funds in the partner country. To promote engagement, however, accompanying measures in Germany may also be included in the proposal. Projects must commence in 2018 and run for a maximum of three years.
The two-stage application procedure begins with a Declaration of Interest, which we must receive by 22 December 2017 both by surface mail and by email. The actual project proposals may be submitted by no later than 30 March 2018.
