What is the difference between grants and the state social order?

First, unlike the state social order, when selecting organizations in grant financing, the criterion of determining the lowest cost (dumping prices) is not applied. Thus, the main criterion in the selection of grantees is the technical proposal of NGOs, where it reveals the essence of the project.

Secondly, grant funding allows NGOs to use 10% of the grant amount for logistical support of the organization.

Third, grants can be financed from budgetary and extra-budgetary sources (grants are state grants provided at the expense of budgetary funds, and non-state grants provided from extra-budgetary sources by individuals and legal entities, international and foreign organizations on a voluntary basis).
