National Government allocates K2.5 million for the Church-State Partnership Program

The National Government has allocated K2.5 million for the Church-State Partnership Program.

National Planning Minister, Charles Abel, said these funds will support the work of Churches in Papua New Guinea to continue deliver outcomes.

This is from the actual appropriation of K20 million, which was affected by the economic downfall.

Minister Abel said the government relies heavily on Churches and thanked them for understanding the state of the economy.

“Unfortunately we have not received the funding on a timely manner. This relates to some cash flow issues, the government has been going through, so has to prioritise,” Abel said.

Minister Able also announced the funding allocation for the Churches.

He said funding was based on comprehensive submissions, based on statistics.

  • Catholic –  K700, 000
  • Anglican –  K300, 000
  • United Church  –  K200, 000
  • Evangelical Lutheran Church  – K300, 000
  • Evangelical Brotherhood Church – K200, 000
  • Good news Lutheran Church  – K200, 000
  • Seventh Day Adventist Church  – K150, 000
  • Assemblies of God – K150, 000
  • Salvation Army  –  K100, 000
  • South Sea Evangelical Church –  K100, 000
  • Baptist Church – K100, 000

The government will expand its partnership and continue to improve its engagement with the Churches, Abel says, to implement the social development program.
