COAC LAUNCHES ITS 2022 GRANT APPLICATIONS CALL FOR LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION PROJECTS
With the aim of continuing to highlight the role of architecture in society, the COAC has opened its eleventh grant applications call for local and international development cooperation projects related to architecture and town planning. The awarding of these grants is in keeping with the COAC’s commitment to allocating 0.7% of its annual budget to social pursuits.
Among those eligible to apply for grants are associations, NGOs, foundations and other non-profit bodies working in the field of cooperation with international and/or local development which have architects among their collaborators, whether salaried, volunteers or with a professional service contract.
Main areas: local and international
This call covers two main areas for grants:
- International development cooperation: projects focused on community development in developing countries, working in the most disadvantaged areas and/or those affected by natural disasters or conflicts.
- Local development cooperation: projects focused on community development for people living in vulnerable situations or at social risk in first world areas.
Within each of these two areas, there are five types of grant:
a) Building or renovation of housing
b) Building or renovation of community facilities
c) Building or renovation of infrastructures
d) Building or renovation of public spaces
e) Urban planning
The sums to be allocated range from €3,000 to €10,000 in the case of international projects, with a local-level projects able to apply for up to a maximum of €3,000. A total of €47,000 will, therefore, be awarded in this round of applications.
