Eligible to apply for the annual Local Small Scale Projects program are BiH-registered non-governmental and community organizations, academic institutions working on local projects, international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional institutions, organizations and agencies working on local development activities, municipal, regional or national government institutions or agencies of the recipient country working on local projects, according to the announcement.
