Cross-Border Initiatives seeks to encourage public, private, and non-profit policy and civic entities to develop programs that promote regional cooperation and stability through funding initiatives aimed at, among others:
- Arranging cross-border dialogues among governmental entities, civic organizations, and policy institutes
- Facilitating an exchange of best practices in key economic and governmental policy areas, as well as among citizens and nonprofit groups
- Exploring ways to lower the physical and legal barriers between countries in the Black Sea region
- Promoting regional-wide efforts to build social, cultural, and economic networks
All inquiries and project proposals should be sent to BlackSeaTrust@gmfus.org. BST accepts proposals on a rolling basis for this program.
