The EHF allocates funds through two modalities:
- Standard allocation. This is the primary funding modality for the EHF. It is triggered following the launch of the HRD and its subsequent prioritization exercise (led by the Inter-Cluster Coordination Forum) that identifies acute relief needs and major gaps that require urgent response in the context of the HRD. The HC, in consultation with the Advisory Board, will determine the amount to be allocated through the standard allocation.
- Reserve allocation. It is issued on a periodic basis at the discretion of the HC for collectively identified strategic needs within the context of the HRD and other emerging needs.
