National Urban Livelihoods Mission

Key components and features of the National Urban Livelihoods Mission include:

  1. Social Mobilization and Institution Development (SM&ID): This component focuses on organizing the urban poor into self-help groups (SHGs) and their federations, creating community structures to facilitate their empowerment and capacity building.

  2. Training and Skill Development: NULM provides skill development and capacity-building training programs to enhance the employability of the urban poor. It aims to equip individuals with skills necessary for self-employment or wage employment.

  3. Employment through Skill Training and Placement (EST&P): This component focuses on providing wage employment to the urban poor by facilitating skill training and placement in the formal sector.

  4. Self-Employment Program (SEP): NULM supports the establishment of micro-enterprises by providing financial assistance to individuals/groups of urban poor for setting up gainful self-employment ventures.

  5. Support to Urban Street Vendors: The mission provides assistance to street vendors through measures like the identification of vending zones, access to credit, and skill development.

  6. Setting up of Shelters for Urban Homeless: NULM aims to provide temporary shelters equipped with essential services to the urban homeless during extreme weather conditions.

  7. Capacity Building and Training (CB&T): This component focuses on enhancing the capacity of municipal and other city-level institutions to implement and manage programs related to urban poverty alleviation.

It's important to note that programs and initiatives may evolve, and new developments may have occurred since my last update.
