In the state budget for 2006 year, despite direct subsidies from the central budget for certain non-profit legal entities, there is a subsidy reserve created for funding projects of NGOs designated for performing activities in public benefit, registered in the Central Registry with the Ministry of Justice. This practice started in 2005.


The amount fixed in the budget for this aim for 2006 is 929 900 BGN. According to the Law on the State budget of the Republic of Bulgaria for year 2006 public benefit organizations registered in the Central Registry are eligible to apply for funding from the subsidy reserve with socially significant projects in the field of public education or physical education and social tourism, public healthcare, social sphere, protection of the environment, protection of historical or cultural heritage.


The Decree № 14 of the Council of ministers from January 31th, 2006 for the implementation of the State Budget of the Republic of Bulgaria governs that persons applying with socially significant projects prior to March 15th, 2006 should submit in the Ministry of Justice the projects and the following documents:

            1. Certificate of actual legal status;

            2. List of the members of the managing bodies;

            5. Declaration for observance of the rules of the Law on Measures against the Money Laundering and that no sanctions or fines under this Law have been imposed on the person, respectively on the members of its managing body;

            6. Declaration for the number of the members of the body under point 1.

            The projects will be assessed, under the same procedure like the last year, by a 10-member Committee, appointed after an ordinance of the Prime minister, with which the rules for the proceedings of the committee are defined.

Chairman of the Committee is the Deputy Minister of the Justice and members are representatives from the administration of the Council of ministers, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economy and Еnergetics, the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy, the Ministry of Healthcare, the Ministry of Education and Science, the Ministry of Culture and the State Agency of Youth and Sports, nominated by the heads of the respective ministries.


The Committee will assess the projects, and at the evaluation of the social significance of the projects will have to take into consideration the number of the expected beneficiaries from the implementation of the project, the costs per person for the implementation of the project, the number of members of the NGO and others.


By April 15th, 2006 the Committee will submit to the Prime minister minutes with a proposal for the distribution of the resources at this item of the budget. Based on the minutes of the Committee, the Prime minister will submit in the Council of ministers a draft of a government decree for the distribution of the subsidy. Besides this, the Committee will perform an official control if the appointed non-profit legal entity is registered in the Central Registry with the Ministry of Justice. If we receive any additional information in relation to the competition, we will inform you immediately.
