How will the new 2021 budget affect CSOs?

The draft budget for 2021 has been submitted to the Parliament, and the Parliament will start reviewing, including the accompanying draft laws on October 16. As previously informed, the draft budget envisages EUR 1.5 million for the CSO Fund program in 2021 and EUR 2 million in 2022 and 2023. In addition, the Ministry of Culture informs that a draft budget is being submitted to the Parliament for approval, in which the budget planned for next year in the areas under the Ministry of Culture - culture, social integration and media policy - is EUR 193.3 million.
