In its desire to maintain the visibility of architecture's social commitment, the Architect’s Association of Catalonia is, for the fifth year running, opening the call for grants for local and international development projects related to architecture, urban planning and the social function of architects. The awarding of these grants reflects the commitment of the Association to devote 0.7% of its Central Services' annual budget to social causes.

Those eligible to apply for grants within the scope of this call include 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. This call covers two main areas for grants: International Development Cooperation and Local Development Cooperation.

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

Applicants, who must be members of the COAC, can send an email to requesting the necessary documents, which need to be submitted to any COAC branch or delegation before 1 pm on 17 May 2016.
