The SHF has two allocation modalities: the standard allocation and the reserve allocation.
The standard allocation focuses on priority projects in line with the HRP. This normally takes place twice a year based on the availability of resources. It is carried out through the development of strategy papers formulated through a consultative process under the leadership of the HC.
The reserve allocation is primarily intended for the rapid and flexible allocation of funds in the event of unforeseen circumstances, emergencies or strategic needs. Reserve allocations are shorter in nature to allow for a quicker response to emergencies.
