Servizzi Ewropej f’Malta – SEM delivered an online information session for Local Councils on several EU funding opportunities which might be of interest to them. The information session focused on the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values programme (CERV), Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps.
During the session various funding strands financed through each funding programme were explained. An overview of SEM services which can be availed of by Local Councils was also given:
- Identification of relevant funding opportunities and development of the project idea
- Application writing and assistance with the project submission process
- Support with the implementation of EU funded projects
Local Councils were encouraged to contact SEM to discuss funding opportunities and SEM services. Success stories from two Local Councils were presented; Tarxien Local Council and Għajnsielem Local Council. This event was organised with the support of the Local Councils’ Association (LCA) and the Department for Local Government.
