|A non-governmental organisation (NGO) which intends to apply for recurrent subventions from SWD must be a bona fide non-profit making charitable organisation exempted from tax under section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance.
For this purpose, SWD allocates new service units through competition in service quality among proposals submitted by NGOs. Selected service operators will normally be awarded the service through a time-defined Funding and Service Agreement (FSA) with Lump Sum Grant as the mode of funding arrangement. NGOs interested in applying for subventions to operate welfare services may regularly browse the 'Invitation for Proposals/Expression of Interest' column on the SWD Homepage for the latest information.
An NGO applying for subventions for the first time must provide detailed information which include the NGO's registration certificate, constitutions/articles of association, management structure and names of the accountable persons, audited financial reports for the past three years, track records and services provided, etc.
If you need further information, please contact SWD Subventions Section on 2832 4308.
