Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export) will host a Grant Proposal Writing Workshop on July 3, 2013, at the Fort Young Hotel, Roseau, Dominica.

The objectives of the sessions are to increase the awareness of the Direct Assistance Grant Scheme (DAGS) among the Dominican Private Sector as well as deliver hands-on assistance to Business Support Organisations (BSOs) as they facilitate the application process across the various sectors. There will also be an opportunity for one-on-one consultations with small and medium-sized enterprises interested in accessing the Direct Assistance Grant facility.

The workshop is being held in collaboration with the Dominica Export Import Agency (DEXIA), the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States Export Development Unit (OECS-EDU), the Dominica Coalition of Service Industries (DCSI) and the Dominica Employment and Small Business Agency.

The Direct Assistance Grant Scheme is a reimbursement grant funding facility specifically designed to provide financial assistance to legally registered firms, individuals and Business Support Organisations who have the potential to export their products and services. The Scheme is executed as a part of the Regional Private Sector Development Programme (RPSDP) funded by the European Union (EU) under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF).
