Innovation and a development focus should be an integral part of all project proposals received during the application process.ISIF Asia provides financial support for projects in the form of "small grants." Small grants are not repayable as no money or interest must be paid back. Grants allocation is decided through a competitive process following a rigorous selection process. This funding mechanism allows the use of flexible and simple management tools.
