Calls for proposals are published yearly. Detailed instructions on how to draw up and submit the application are provided in the application guidelines published together with the call for proposals.
The call for proposals for NGOs active in the fields of environment and climate change will be published in April 2017 and will be open for around 6 weeks. Selected NGOs will sign a Framework Partnership Agreement covering the financial years 2018 and 2019. Those NGOs will be then asked to submit their first yearly work programme in view of signing a Specific Grant Agreement for 2018.
