The EU-funded project aims to increase and support Georgian civil society organisations’ role in raising public awareness, understanding and support for implementation of the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA).

The sub-grants to regional civil society organisations seek to support CSOs in contributing to on-going discussions and awareness raising about DCFTA implementation, and to help them become active actors in their respective communities and to engage and inform the public, especially SMEs, about DCFTA opportunities.

  1. Awareness raising about DCFTA among the Georgian public; 
  2. Awareness raising about DCFTA among regional small and medium enterprises and public servants 

In total, 60 grants of to €1,000 will be distributed by ensuring equal distribution within topics I & II, as well as geographical coverage of all 9 Georgian regions and the Autonomous Republic of Adjara.
