How to Apply for a WBIF Grant?
The WBIF provides grants for energy, environment, social, transport, digital infrastructure as well as private sector development infrastructure projects, following annual or bi-annual open calls for proposals.
Private sector development grants may also be allocated to specific initiatives which complement the infrastructure projects and help achieve the Framework's goals and objectives.
Project applications must meet the eligibility criteria set forth for a specific Call as well as respond to the requirements detailed in the Guidelines relevant for the type of grant support - technical assistance or investment. Moreover, as defined by the WBIF Steering Committee, only projects submitted and/or endorsed by the National IPA Coordinators (NIPACs) in each beneficiary country are eligible for consideration.
