Civil Society Support Programme

CSSP’s overall purpose is to deliver sustainable social and economic benefits to the people of Samoa through strengthened CSOs. It seeks to achieve measurable social and economic benefits from well managed projects, where CSOs play a more active role in national and community affairs.  To facilitate support to CSOs, CSSP provides a single point of contact and a common set of application forms and reporting requirements.   It also provides for CSO capacity building in project and organisational management and in proposal writing. Technical assistance is provided grantees to improve the implementation of their projects and to help make their impact more lasting and sustainable.  CSSP also supports opportunities for information exchange among community organisations on their projects and best practices.
