MEUSAC reaches yet another milestone after decade of success
MEUSAC helped various organisations garner a total of €45 million in EU funds for a total of 392 projects in a span of 10 years – no easy feat considering that each beneficiary garnered an average of €115,000 in EU funds for their projects.
MEUSAC was reactivated on July 7, 2008 and entrusted with three main functions: Consultation, Information and EU Funding Assistance.
Ten years ago, the need was felt for local councils and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to be supported with technical and professional assistance to apply for projects co-financed by EU funds. The assistance that MEUSAC provides on a daily basis consists of furnishing information about EU funding opportunities and, more importantly, by assisting potential applicants in filling and submitting the applications.
Local councils have managed to benefit from more than €20 million from EU funds for 139 different projects whereas NGOs benefited from around €12 million for 217 projects. In recent years, this service has been extended to Government entities with 36 projects worth just under €13 million in total being approved.
MEUSAC will be running a series of posts on its Facebook page and website www.meusac.gov.mt as part of a campaign themed #decadeofsuccess on the successful projects it played a vital role in. This campaign is intended to encourage more organisations to seek more information on EU funding, either by using MEUSAC’s social media networks or by setting an appointment for a one-to-one meeting to discuss project ideas and potential sources of funding.
A live Q&A session tied to this campaign will also run on MEUSAC’s Facebook account @MEUSACMalta on August 13 which will serve as a platform for the public to ask any questions in relation to EU funding opportunities and MEUSAC’s assistance in this regard.
