After numerous requests by the civil society and a conjoint work between public officials, civil society representatives and international experts that lasted for two years, a regulation on public funding for NGOs has been approved. Regulation MF-No. 04/2017 on the Criteria, Standards and Procedures for Public Financing of NGOs, which was signed on June 13 2017 by the Minister of Finances, Mr Avdullah Hoti, provides a system of financial support for CSOs by Kosovo’s public funds. The document marks an important step forward by setting rules for this type of support, in accordance with the principles of transparency, meritocracy and full compliance with the legislation in force.
