Project and activities

 
EEA GRANTS and NORWAY GRANTS & NGO Block Grant of Swiss Confederation

We are professional administrators of crucial financial mechanisms for funding NGO activities in 5 CEE EU countries for the governments of Norway and the Swiss Confederation.

EPA is focused on supporting environmental and social projects of NGOs, promoting democracy, human rights and gender equality, strengthening the capacity of NGOs as well as specific needs of minority groups.

European Tree of the Year

EPA initiated the European contest of the most lovable tree, a tree with a story that can bring the community together.

Greenways

EPA is a member of the European Cyclist Federation and European Greenways Association and coordinates the European cycle route network Eurovelo on the national level in Central European countries. EPA also certifies facilities and services for cyclists with the certification “Cyclists welcome”.

European Environmental Policy Implementation

EPA implements its own projects and is also a partner of European projects supported by the EC financial instruments – for example INTERREG, Europa Aid, Grundtwig and national structural funds. EPA provides professional counselling for NGOs and small municipalities on effective use of the EC funds on national level.
