Free meetings taking place between the 27th and 30th of this month
Four municipalities in Espirito Santo will receive workshops for the population to answer questions about the Doce RFP ES. They take place between January 27th and 30th, and aim to facilitate the application process for those interested. The workshops are held in Sao Mateus, Aracruz, Linhares and Baixo Guandu.
The Doce RFP ES is an initiative through which the Renova Foundation will offer financial assistance to projects in the areas of Tourism, Culture, Sports and Recreation in Espirito Santo municipalities impacted by the collapse of the Fundao dam. Up to R$ 4.5 million will be allocated to the selected projects.
Those that may participate, free of charge, are projects by individuals, micro-entrepreneurs, collectives and informal groups, non-profit organizations and companies operating in the municipalities of Aracruz, Baixo Guandu, Colatina, Conceicao da Barra, Fundao, Linhares, Marilandia, Sao Mateus, Serra and Sooretama. It is possible to submit up to three different proposals, regardless of the chosen thematic axis – Tourism, Culture, Sport or Recreation.
Rafaela Cavalcanti, analyst at Renova’s Program Supporting Tourism, Culture, Sports and Recreation, sees the RFP as a way to encourage initiatives aimed at communities. “The RFP will provide for a democratic access to resources for community projects that value culture, promote sports and recreation and increase tourism that benefit the impacted populations,” she said.
If your municipality does not receive one of the workshops, or if you can’t make it to the meeting in your town, you can go another district. It is also possible to ask questions related to the RFP by email, until February 7, 2020. Send your question to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for sending in applications for the Doce RFP ES is February 24, 2020. The RFP is free of charge and is receiving applications through the website until February 24, 2020. The results will be released starting June that same year.
