Questions related to the applicants and their experience:
1. What is preferable way of sub-grant application: in consortium or single CSO? Is there any advantage in this case?
According to point 2.2. of the Guidelines, “Eligible applicants can either apply alone (without partners) or act together with other partners”. This implies that there is no preference as to applications by single CSOs or CSOs acting as consortium and applications will be evaluated in the same way. Preference, however, will be given to applicants representing “smaller CSOs registered in regions outside the capital“ (point 2.2.1 of the Guidelines). If several CSOs decide to cooperate as a group (consortium), “at least one applicant (lead applicant or co-applicant) of the group must be registered outside the capital” (point 2.2.2 of the Guidelines). The input of each organization should be clearly justified in the Application and the share of responsibilities clearly stated in point 5 of the Grant Application Form. Furthermore, the share of responsibilities should also be reflected in the Budget. 
2. Please specify what you mean by saying that international organisations and their local branches/representative offices are not eligible. What if the local branches are registered as local NGOs?
Eligibility of organisations is clearly defined in point 2.2.1 of the Guideline. Eligible applicants are those registered in Georgia only. Any international organisation or their local branches which are not registered as local CSOs are not eligible for this call.
3. Can the Lead organization be based in the capital?
