The new BACID Call for Proposals is the second Call under the second phase of the BACID programme that will last from 2018 to 2021. BACID Fund is the funding facility financed by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) and managed by the Austrian Association of Cities and Towns (AACT) and KDZ (Public Administration Research Centre). It supports know-how transfer actions from Austria to partner countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo and Moldova.

The objective of the BACID Fund is to strengthen the capacities of the entities in the non-EU countries of the Western Balkans and Moldova within economic, environmental and social pillars of sustainable development - the priority is given to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) – making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

The targets covered by all other SDGs are also eligible. These themes include a wide range of topics related to economic and social development, environmental protection as well as building strong institutions and partnerships.

The added-value of the Call is ensuring seed-funding to enable applicants to access other funding opportunities, as well as supporting follow-up actions of already implemented projects.

All information about the Call and the application package is available at: or by e-mail at:

The application deadline is August 2, 2019.
