Reform Fund Linked to the
Inclusion of Roma and other Vulnerable Groups

Line 1

Annex 4 of the Framework Agreement between the Government of Romania and the Swiss Federal Council concerning the Implementation of the Swiss-Romanian Cooperation Programme to reduce economic and social disparities within the enlarged European Union holds that a thematic fund for the Inlcusion of Roma and other vulnerable groups will be set up and implemented under two different lines. Line 1 shall focus on the improvement of living conditions of Roma and other vulnerable groups. Under Line 1 four Swiss NGOs have been invited through a Restricted Call to submit project proposals.

The role of the Programme Management Unit (PMU) under Line 1 is to assess the project proposals and assure the general monitoring during the implementation period.

As a result of the assessment of the PMU three Swiss NGOs have been selected and recommended for contracting.
