Much in little
The Civic Chamber constantly interacts with numerous non-commercial organizations (NCOs) of Russia. Representatives of NCOs participate as experts in reviews of bills held by the Chamber, in hearings and meetings, and in the formation of positions on various issues that require decision-making at the federal level. With the Chamber’s active assistance, Russian NCOs have been receiving state financial support since 2006.
