The government of North Macedonia has issued two public calls for funding under its program for reducing air pollution for 2019, according to announcements on the government’s website.

One invitation refers to financial support to state accredited higher education institutions, high schools, elementary schools, and kindergartens to help them procure indoor air purifiers. The funding will be awarded to applicants that have high levels of air pollution (high concentrations of particulate matter РМ10 and РМ2.5 in the air), according to the announcement.

The deadline to submit applications is August 23, 2019 at 4 pm, and applicants are required to submit a report on the concentrations of PM10 and PM2.5 in 2018, among other things, according to the invitation.

The criteria for approving the funds include the number of days in 2018 with concentrations of PM10 and PM2.5 higher than the median daily values, the average annual concentration of PM10 and PM2.5, and the number of enrolled students/pupils/children.
