Grant competitions for funding social initiatives

The grant competitions is the key method
to support initiatives led by local representatives, non-governmental and non-profit organisations, and state-funded institutions in regions in which Gazprom Neft operates

Through the grant competitions, Gazprom Neft is supporting local initiatives aimed at systematic, innovative, and effective social change, in line with the key elements of the “Home Towns” Programme.

The company not only provides assistance in implementing a project, but also seeks to ensure that most initiatives continue to develop and produce results after the grants have been used. Winners of competitions receive financial, practical and expert support from the company.

In 2019, the competitions was held in six regions: the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug-Yugra, the Tyumen Oblast, the Tomsk Oblast, the Omsk Oblast, and the Orenburg Oblast. The company supported 143 initiatives; priority was given to projects which used digital technologies, and the grant fund amounted to about ₽37 million.
