The Memorandum of Understanding between Greeceand the three donor states of the European Economic Areas (EEA) Grants for the period 2009-2014 came into force on 8 November 2011. The EEA Grants (Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) in Greeceinclude a 6.340.000€ allocation aimed at strengthening civil society development and exclusively earmarked for NGOs, to be implemented within the next five years through an NGO Programme. The Fund Operator for the NGO Programme will be contracted directly by the Financial Mechanism Office in Brussels. In order to establish the list of invitees, the Financial Mechanism Office is launching a call for expressions of interest to organisations wishing to apply for the role of Fund Operator.
The organisations shall be autonomous of government, with strong ties to the NGO sector in the country and with re-granting experience and financial capacity, as detailed in the Guideline referred to below. Based on these criteria, a final list, usually between 3 β 8 organisations shall be established.

Expressions of interest may also be submitted by a consortium.
