Apply for support

The C40 Cities Finance Facility (CFF) facilitates access to finance for climate change mitigation and resilience projects in urban areas by providing technical assistance to develop cities’ sustainability priorities into bankable investment proposals.

We are currently accepting applications for projects in the following sectors:

  • Adaptation
  • Energy
  • Transportation
The CFF is currently selecting one project with a focus on improving air quality. Cities are invited to apply before the 17th May 2019. Please note that while we encourage you to submit a project application in any other sector,  unfortunately we do not have the capabilities to support any further projects at this time. We will make sure to contact you if this changes. 

The Stage 1 Application to the C40 Cities Finance Facility asks cities to:

  • provide background information on the project.
  • outline the project’s level of preparation, including its technical readiness and cost.
  • delineate challenges that the project may face, if any.

The CFF analyses all Stage 1 applications internally, drawing on C40 and GIZ experts and external consultants to assess the validity of the project and its compliance with the CFF’s principles.

If the stage 1 application is successful, the CFF then invites the city to complete a Stage 2 Application, to complete the due diligence process and thus determine if the project is a viable candidate for CFF support.
