Response to COVID-19- Emergency and early recovery support

 

Call for Proposals for fixed Grants

 

Response to COVID-19 Emergency and early recovery support project aims to enhance the provision of social services by CSW and improve access to equitable, qualitative, integrated social protection for the most vulnerable groups, including women and girls.

 

  1. BACKGROUND

 

The COVID-19 crisis is having a significant impact on people’s lives – in terms of jobs, livelihoods, delivery of basic services – and particularly for those already in vulnerable situations who have been hit the hardest.

 

The costs of institutional response to the crisis are continuously facing diverse challenges on equal distribution amongst the population and are affecting social groups differently. While policy responses must be just, fair, and equal for all, they should also attempt to address diverse needs be it of women, youth, minority communities, or disabled individuals.

 

The Social Assistance Scheme (SAS) absorbs approximately 88% of the budget for social assistance. The pandemic has exposed a series of gaps in the governance system which has affected the work of institutions and other service delivery entities in provision of social services.

To address some of these issues, the Humanitarian Assistance project shall enhance the provision of social services by Centres for Social Work (CSWs) and improve access to equitable, qualitative, integrated social protection for the most vulnerable groups, including women and girls. The project is funded through EU IPA II/Action Document (Kosovo).

The work of social service providers is augmented through licensed NGOs/other entities who cooperate with CSWs, municipal departments and the Ministry of Finance, Labour, and Transfers (MFLT). While NGOs are operational and provide adequate services, a key challenge is their financial sustainability. Most provide project-based services that are mainly complementary services to support beneficiaries with education activities, health support, alleviation of poverty, psycho-social activities and other community-based services. However, there is a limited number of NGOs that can support the social service providers and beneficiaries with sheltering, longer term support and emergency support services—which is what these entities need the most.

  1. OBJECTIVE OF THE CALL

As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the objective of the Call for Application is to support the continuation of quality functioning of residential centres such as emergency shelters, homes for the elderly or abandoned children, provide a much-needed support for those at risk, particularly in times of crisis through rehabilitation, small reconstructions, building annexes.
