23 Jul 2020

In the past period, the Commission for Allocation of Funds to Non-Governmental Organizations consulted with representatives of Tivat non-governmental organizations and passed a Decision amending the Decision on Allocation of Funds for NGO Projects for 2020. With this decision, the projects of non-governmental organizations which, due to the current epidemiological situation, can be realized in a certain part, will be supported in a way that the existing budgets will be harmonized and the approved amount of funds will be adjusted.

Namely, the Secretariat for Culture and Social Activities of the Municipality of Tivat conducted in the first quarter of 2020, the procedure of the public competition for the distribution of funds to non-governmental organizations for 2020, in accordance with the Decision on criteria, manner and procedure of distribution. The Decision entered into force and acted upon at the time of the proclamation of the COVID-19 virus pandemic. Due to the impossibility of public gatherings to the extent required by most project activities of non-governmental organizations, the necessity of repealing the Decision allocating funds to non-governmental organizations in 2020 was noticed. "During the consultations with the representatives of non-governmental organizations, we noticed that there are conditions for the realization of certain activities, ie projects that include electronic communication and presentation, ie individual work. That is why it was decided that these NGOs be paid a part of the approved funds in order to enable the realization of part of the projects ", said on this occasion the Secretary of the Secretariat for Culture and Social Affairs, Dubravka Nikčević, MA. "It is important at this time, to recognize those projects that are important for the development of the local community and the NGO sector itself, and which can be implemented without hindrance, and support them, as the Municipality of Tivat has done so far," she said. Nikčević. Based on all the above, the President of the Municipality of Tivat, Dr. Siniša Kusovac, signed contracts with 4 non-governmental organizations. NGO "Klapa Jadran" received support in the amount of € 2,857.1 for its project activities. NGO "Children of Tivat" for the project "Let the planet bloom" received support in the amount of 2,000 €. The NGO "European Home" and the project "Services for Children with Developmental Disabilities" were supported with € 3,056 and the project "Tivat Breviary" of the NGO "Boka - Donja Lastva" was supported with € 2,000. The full implementation of these agreements will be conditioned by the current situation. At the moment, in accordance with the Decision on Amendments to the Decision on Allocation of Funds for NGO Projects for 2020, there will be no financial support for those projects that cannot be implemented due to the epidemiological situation. The non-governmental sector and the general public will be informed about all possible changes in a timely manner.
