At the moment, they are at a 9% support rate.

  • Identify opportunities for private funding for Mobility First! including:Identify risks and alternatives

    • Rationale (e.g. matching or complementing missions and values)

    • Possible structure of partnership (e.g. Singapore-based foundation “X” might only consider funding Singaporeans travelling out of Singapore or incoming arts practitioners into Singapore, Mr. “Y” might be willing to contribute to the multilateral fund with no preference for nationalities supported…)
