ZAGREB, March 16, 2020 – Croatia has set aside five million kuna, the same as in 2019, for Croat minority programmes in 12 European countries, and applications for grants can be submitted until April 14, the Central State Office for Croats Abroad has said.

Of the five million kuna (approx. 660,000 euro), 1.25 million is intended for Croat minority organisations in Serbia, HRK 550,000 is intended for Croats in Slovenia, HRK 500,000 each for Croat minority organisations in Austria and Hungary, and HRK 400,000 each for Croats in Montenegro and Italy.

A total of HRK 350,000 each is to be allocated to Croat minority organisations in Romania and North Macedonia, HRK 300,000 to Croats in Kosovo, HRK 250,000 to the Croat minority in Slovakia, HRK 100,000 to Croats in the Czech Republic and HRK 50,000 to Croats in Bulgaria.

The minimum grant amounts to HRK 3,000 per project and the maximum grant cannot exceed the total amount intended for an individual country.

The priority areas in which Croat organisations can apply for funding are development of Croat minority organisations, culture, education and science, as well as sports, economic and similar programmes that contribute to the preservation of the Croat identity, strengthen the status of the respective Croat minority and enhance its relations with Croatia.
