|Email item||Print item||
€160,000 is to be shared between a number of Gozitan NGOs who have had their proposals selected through three Ministry for Gozo schemes to carry out projects, initiatives and events this year.
The Minister for Gozo Justyne Caruana said that the Ministry received no less than 70 applications, through the Non-Governmental Organisations Scheme, the Promotion of Sports Initiatives and Facilities Scheme, and the Cultural Events Fund.
Dr Caruana explained that following an “independent and transparent evaluation process,” 32 of these will benefit through a grant from the Ministry for Gozo.
The Minister pointed out that after the success of the past editions, the Ministry had increased the allocation of funds and congratulated the successful organisations. She also invited the others to resubmit enhanced applications.
Minister Caruana explained that it is necessary for voluntary organisations to comply with the rules laid down by the Commissioner for Voluntary Organisations.
