On 7 September 2020 the Special EU Programmes Body opened a new funding call, under the EU’s PEACE IV Programme, to support community-led social innovation across Northern Ireland and the Border Region of Ireland.
This call will fund a single regional-wide project that can create new approaches to tackle the challenges which keep communities divided.
The successful applicant will be expected to engage in meaningful peace and reconciliation activity and include a pathway/outreach programme that creates sustained contact between people from different backgrounds and communities.
The project must also have a specific focus on the needs of minority groups as well as groups who traditionally have been marginalised by society. It will create opportunities for these groups to have a greater degree of participation and integration within larger community life. See below details of the funding call.
The call will close on Monday 16 November 2020 at 3pm. The SEUPB cannot accept applications received after this date.
