Covid-19 Post-Lockdown Support to NGOs

The National Social Inclusion Foundation (NSIF), established by Government in December 2016, is the Central Body for receiving and allocating public funds to NGOs. The Foundation operates under the aegis of the Ministry of Social Integration, Social Security and National Solidarity. In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, the NSIF is finalising its post-lockdown response to the financial and operational challenges NGOs are likely to face in the delivery of their programmes and projects, including National Programmes.

Improved Funding Support to NGOs
The Foundation reviewed its funding framework last year in order to harmonise the disbursement of Government grants and allocation of funds to NGOs. Funding support provided to NGOs has been
improved and adapted, taking into consideration the types of intervention, organisational capacities and funding needs.
