Romania – Extension of deadline for applications for POCU 4.1

The Romanian Ministry of European Funds has recently announced the extension to 15 september 2016 of the deadline for applications for the call for projects within the Operational Program Human Capital (POCU) 1, 2 and 3.
These call for projects are financed under the specific objectives 4.1 Local Integrated Development in marginalized communities with a Roma minority and 4.2 Local Integrated Development in marginalized communities.
This announcement is of particular importance to ROMACT municipalities in Romania since many have prepared or are in the process of preparing the necessary documentation for applications to POCU 4.1, with the assistance of the ROMACT National Support Team and Community Action Groups.
According to State Secretary Mr Ciprian Necula, local elections in June 2016 created a vacuum of leadership during the period of transfer of authority, which created delays in the conclusion of partnerships with the authorities. The extensions was operated in the MySMIS system and will also be included in the Guidelines for Applications.
