The general objectives of the NGO Block Grant are:
to strengthen Romanian NGOs and to enable their active participation in policy processes both as the voice of civil society and as a service provider, and
to promote activities of the civil society organisations primarily tackling environmental issues, contributing to the provision of social services as well as allowing for strengthening their organisational capacities.
The NGO Block Grant focuses on providing support in two major areas: social and environmental protection aspects. Thus, there are two distinct components: the Social and the Environmental components.
