Frequently Asked Questions

Have a look at some of our Frequently Asked Questions below.

The Nigeria Solidarity Support Fund (NSSF) has been developed by Nigerians for Nigerians, through a joint effort of the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA) and Global Citizen Nigeria to support funding for the nation’s COVID-19 response, recovery, and mitigation efforts.

NSSF will fund initiatives that advance its three core COVID-19 response, mitigation, and recovery objectives:

  1. Health system strengthening with an emphasis on building resilient primary health care systems, and ensuring future health system security. 
  2. Supporting Nigeria’s most vulnerable populations and communities in recovery and mitigation efforts.
  3. Reskilling the Nigerian youth and workforce development in anticipation of an emerging post-COVID-19 economy.

Grants will be awarded in support of projects that advance the three core objectives of the NSSF and will target the most vulnerable communities.

The amount of each grant award will vary across projects and will be determined by the NSSF board of directors. Award priority will be given to projects where NSSF can leverage other public and private funding; NSSF funds are not intended to replace public funds but rather as a complement.

While the anticipated need in Nigeria is exponential, an initial fundraising goal of US$50 million/NGN20 billion (within the first 18 months) has been established for this fund. This will enable implementation on the fund’s three core objectives.
