Grant competitions for social initiatives
Grant competitions are one of the key tools for involving stakeholders in the transformation of their regions and developing skills in social design.
Gazprom Neft utilizes such competitions to support initiatives aimed at systemic, innovative, and effective social reforms that are consistent with the key focuses of the ‘Native Towns programme. Public, charitable, and non-profit organizations along with state and municipal institutions can participate in such competitions, and groups of local residents have also had this opportunity since 2017. The winners of the competitions receive financial, methodological, and expert support from the Company.
The Company analyses the results of past years and takes them into account when developing new projects. Competitions held in 2013-2016 resulted in pilot grant competitions being held for initiative groups of citizens in 2017.
Gazprom Neft regularly analyses the sustainability of winning projects. Sustainable projects are recognized as ones that continue in full or expand following the end of grant support.
