Support to civil society organisations is a very important element of the Irish Aid programme, and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade recognises the vital contribution that civil society makes in international development cooperation.

Irish Aid funding to civil society organisations supports both long term development projects and programmes, and humanitarian assistance for emergency response and protracted crises.

The main Irish Aid civil society funding schemes are the Programme Grant (PG), Civil Society Fund (CSF), Humanitarian Programme Plan (HPP), and the Emergency Response Fund Scheme (ERFS). The table below lists organisations who have received funding under each of these schemes from 2015 to 2018.

Funding is also provided to civil society organisations through a range of mechanisms including established strategic partnerships with umbrella groups, to missionary organisations through Misean Cara, through the Development Education strategy, support of the Government's overseas Volunteering Initiative and through Embassy-managed programmes and projects.
