The Union Cabinet in its meeting held on 3rd September 2013 decided to set up Bharat Rural Livelihoods Foundation (BRLF), an independent society to upscale civil society action in partnership with Government. The BRLF is an autonomous body, registered under the Societies Registration Act, 1860 on the 10th of December 2013.

BRLF has been set up to foster and facilitate civil society action in partnership with government for transforming the livelihoods and lives of people in areas such as the Central Indian Adivasi belt, which is the initial geography of focus of the Foundation. The aim is to support grassroots level action towards empowerment of people, particularly the Adivasis and scaling up of approaches that are innovative both in terms of programme content and strategy. Innovation can be in myriad directions – technology, social mobilisational approaches, local institution building, architecture of partnerships, management techniques etc. Strategically, a common feature will be that each project supported by BRLF will attempt to leverage the vast resources being made available by both banks and government for a large number of programmes.
