Five projects „United against COVID-19“ awarded with funding

Five non-governmental organizations, supported by the Project Generation Facility, received funding totalling BGN 50,000 from the “United against COVID-19” Response Fund, established by the Bulgarian Donors Forum, America for Bulgaria Foundation, the U.S. Embassy in Bulgaria and the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria to support local communities in the country affected by the coronavirus crisis.

Thanks to the initiative of civil society organizations, hundreds of vulnerable Roma households in the municipalities of Kyustendil, Isperih, Peshtera, Septemvri and Tundzha received the necessary food, medicine and protective means, which they could not provide on their own during the deepening pandemic and related economic crisis.

By the end of May 2020, “United against COVID-19” Response Fund provided just over BGN 1 million for projects of 49 community centres and NGOs and 63 hospitals, municipalities, schools and business organizations throughout the whole country.

By the beginning of June, the Project Generation Facility has already supported with consultations over 20 project proposals of NGOs under various funding instruments, and the results of the evaluation of most of them are expected in the next two months.
