Catalytic Fund

The Catalytic Fund (CATF) is a Cities Alliance funding instrument which provides grant support for innovative projects that strengthen and promote the role of cities in poverty reduction and in sustainable urban development.

Focus areas for proposals
1. Know your city finances and assets.
2. Know your citizens – social accountability.
3. Know ALL of your city and its constituencies.
4. Know the future potential of your city – methodologies for planning.
5. Know the emerging issues.

  • To be considered for funding, all proposed projects must:
  • Meet the objectives of the chosen theme and the Catalytic Fund in general. It must also fall within the scope of the Cities Alliance Charter.
  • Be implemented in countries that are on the OECD DAC List of Aid Recipients. Please note that if this call for proposals is over-subscribed, preference will be given to those countries where the Cities Alliance does not have a significant existing programme/set of activities. Countries where the Cities Alliance has a significant existing programme/set of activities are: Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mozambique, Uganda and Vietnam.
  • Limit grant size requests  to between US $50,000 – US $200,000. Co-financing is strongly encouraged.
  • Be sponsored by at least one Cities Alliance member. However, multiple sponsors are strongly encouraged.  Sponsorship(s) must be secured prior to submission of the proposed project. Proponent and sponsor(s) must discuss and endorse the Concept Note of the proposed project including the role of the sponsor(s) prior to submission. Support documentation will need to be provided.
