The European City Facility (EUCF), is a EU-funded initiative aiming to provide financial support and services to cities and municipalities. It will support local authorities and groupings of local authorities in developing relevant investment concepts. The facility, armed with a €60,000 grant and technical support via capacity-building activities, will empower local authorities to transform the energy and climate ambitious plans into real investments. The streamlined process to access funding has been designed to encourage small and medium-sized municipalities to apply. Smaller cities will also be encouraged to team up with peers in bundling projects and blending funds.
The first call will be launched in May 2020 and the first operational webinar on how to apply will be held on 7 April. Potential beneficiaries are encouraged to keep an eye on the EUCF website and follow @eucityfacility on Twitter for more information
