Background of LSG

The Lump Sum Grant (LSG) aims to give NGOs flexibility and greater autonomy to deploy resources and re-engineer services to meet changing community needs
During the financial year of 2022/23, the government subsidized over HK$20 Billion to 170 NGOs
However, a significant concern is that the LSG reserve has exceeded HK$5 billion
Surpassing 25% of the Social Welfare Department's (SWD) subvention. Some organizations have even accumulated LSG reserves of more than HK$0.3 billion
In 2021/22, 47 NGOs recorded a reserve balance exceeding the 25% threshold
resulting in a total refund of HK$80 million to the SWD. This highlights the importance of effectively utilizing the grant to avoid unnecessary financial burdens and ensure optimal resource allocation.
Can organizations effectively utilize the Lump Sum Grant (LSG) considering the growing severity of frontline staff turnover, given that the largest expense covered by the LSG is personal enrolments of staff?

TalentOut Flow 1
Does Lump Sum Grant (LSG) usage lead to talent outflow?
The issue is less about the LSG itself, and more about how it's managed.Ineffective financial planning can cause talent loss and impact service quality.
The Social Welfare Department promotes actuarial studies to guide NGOs in effective LSG management, enhancing decision-making and preventing excessive reserve clawbacks. This ensures sustainable talent retention and service delivery. The LSG is not the problem, poor financial management is - let's change this narrative together.TalentOut Flow 1
