Report expected on lottery and development funding

2011-03-29 10:42

The funding practices of the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund and the National Development Agency (NDA) would be under scrutiny in a report to be released tomorrow, the Funding Practice Alliance (FPA) said.

“The research project was initiated from a position of ongoing concern over a period of years about the impact of the funding practices of these bodies on the many organisations reliant on their grants,” said spokesperson James Taylor yesterday.

He said that the report, entitled Meeting their Mandates?, would explore the extent to which the agencies were addressing the country’s development challenges.

The report was the product of a year-long research endeavour commissioned by the FPA, Taylor said.

He said the report contained information drawn from a number of stakeholders, including the National Lottery Board and former NDA board members.
