Become a GCERF Grant Recipient in the Western Balkans
Applications close: 11 :59PM (CET) Sunday 27 September 2020

GCERF invites Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to apply for funding focused on implementing programmes that enable the environment for rehabilitation and reintegration (R&R) of returned foreign terrorist fighters (RFTFs) and their families.

GCERF, in collaboration with the RAFP in the Western Balkans, is pleased to announce a call for expressions of interest for CSOs in Albania, Kosovo, and North Macedonia to develop a consortium and become a Principal Recipient (PR) of GCERF funding from GCERF’s Accelerated Funding Mechanism (AFM).

Under the AFM, GCERF will fund consortia of CSOs to implement initiatives aimed at enabling the environment for rehabilitation and reintegration of RFTFs and their families. Consortium grants are managed and supported by the PRs who are the legal recipients of GCERF funding and provide funding to other consortium members or “Sub-Recipients” (SR). The PR will be responsible for managing R&R programming in either Albania, Kosovo, or North Macedonia, but not regionally.  There may be some opportunities for a PR in Albania/Kosovo/North Macedonia, for example, to engage a technical service provider/partner that could support GCERF grantees in multiple countries.

All Expressions of Interest must be duly filled and submitted electronically to by 27 September 2020.

The email should be marked as ‘EOI-ALBANIA’, ‘EOI-KOSOVO’, or ‘EOI-NORTH MACEDONIA’ – in the subject line – depending on which country you are applying for. Failing to do so might compromise your submission.

More information is available here.
