The Yemen Humanitarian Fund launched its first Standard Allocation on 12 August 2018, after the finalization of the fast-tracked Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (YHRP). The objectives of the Allocation were based on the priorities of the YHRP and were to: bridge gaps in the first-line response of Cluster partners, increase humanitarian service delivery in hard-to-reach areas across the country, and strengthen cooperation with national front-line NGOs through a dedicated allocation window of US$5,2 million. A total of US$86.9 million was allocated to 75 projects targeting 3 million people in need in 19 Governorates across seven Clusters and seven Multi-Cluster projects. In recognition of their access and capacity advantages, national NGOs received 50 per cent of the total funding allocated.
