The €1.1 million Portuguese NGO fund to promote environmental protection and sustainable development launched its open call for proposals on 15 April 2008.
Environmental non governmental organisations, social partners, and non profit associations within the field of environment can apply for project support from the NGO fund. The Portuguese Environmental Agency [Agência Portuguesa do Ambiente] is managing the NGO Fund.
Grants ranging from €25,000 to €75,000 will be awarded to environmental projects with a duration of up to two years. Applications can be submitted to the Portuguese Environmental Agency until 30 June 2008.
