Apply now for grants for transnational working visits under ROMACT

Application Deadline is 15 July 2018


We have the pleasure to inform you that a new call for proposal for grants of the Transnational Cooperation and Capacity Building component of the ROMACT programme (ROMACT TCC) was published today!


ROMACT TCC aims at assisting local authorities in better integrating marginalised people, in particular non-nationals of Roma ethnicity. It is based on the assumption that local authorities are best placed to identify challenges and needs in their territories as no one-size solution fits all. It also draws on expertise of the Council of Europe, more notably in interventions at local level, intercultural training and Roma mediators training.
ROMACT TCC comprises three modules:
Module A - Intercultural trainings,
Module B – Mediation trainings and
Module C – Support for transnational working visits.
This call for proposal for grants concerns the
Module C (Support for transnational working visits) of the ROMACT TCC component.
Interested municipalities are invited to refer to the documents below:

Call for proposal - Appendix I - Appendix II

Any questions regarding this Call for proposal for grants shall be exclusively sent to the following address: .
Deadline for applications is 15 July 2018.
