Scheme to Support National Organisations (SSNO)
The overall aim of the Scheme to Support National Organisations is to provide multi-annual funding towards the core costs of national, community and voluntary organisations in Ireland. The scheme assists grantees to operate and fund core staff positions.
SSNO has an overall budget of over €18.5m from 2019-2022. It is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development (DRCD) and administered by Pobal.
The SSNO primarily focuses on the provision of core funding to national organisations that:
- provide supports (both direct and indirect) to those who are disadvantaged;
- demonstrate good governance;
- deliver services and supports that have a focus on one or more of the following: addressing poverty, addressing social exclusion, promoting equality.
The current round of funding runs from 1st July 2019 until 30th June 2022.
