The goal of this project is to contribute to the maximum possible degree to the transparency and accountability in the use of the EU Structural Funds assistance in Bulgaria, in particular those amounts dedicated to Roma inclusion. The team will perform systematic monitoring of the implementation of two Operational Programs – Human Resources and Regional Development – from their kick-off through their evolvement, and of one Framework Program from the perspective of the full inclusion of the Roma population in the public life of Bulgaria. The project proposal aims at increasing the capacity of local Roma organizations to use needs assessment and idea generation tools for designing successful project proposals and participation in the operational programs.
