Presidential Grants Fund allocates 2 billion roubles to regional CSOs
The Presidential Grants Fund allocates 2 billion roubles to regional NGOs
81 regions received grants for further distribution among non-profit organisations.
At a recent meeting, the coordinating committee approved the distribution of 2 billion roubles for co-financing CSO grants at the regional level in 2023.
Regions had an opportunity to request co-financing on a matching basis — that is, for grants not exceeding the amount allocated for the same purposes in their regional budget. The Presidential Grants Fund took into account how well the authorised bodies and operators of the competing regions did their work last year.
Yesterday, the winners of the first Presidential Grants Fund competition were announced, awarding a total of 1,845 projects.
