The State Duma passed a draft law on providing support to socially useful non-profit organizations
The State Duma passed a draft law in its second reading on providing support to public non-profit organizations, which will take effect in the beginning of the next year. New status will be introduced for non-profit organizations – “a provider of socially useful services”. A list of such services will be approved by a decree of the president. Non-profit organizations will be able to receive such status if they provide services of due quality during a period of time exceeding one year.
