IFE has launched a Call for Proposals in Morocco

Private companies as well as public and non-profit organisations can submit project proposals.

The first Call for Proposals by the Facility Investing for Employment (IFE) in Morocco is open from 1 June to 7 July 2023. It is open to all sectors of the economy. 

Two-stage application procedure 

From 1 June to 7 July 2023, companies as well as public and non-profit organisations can submit investment proposals. Applications can be submitted in four categories. They range from purely private sector investments to public infrastructure projects. The projects are selected in a two-step process. It is essential that each project contributes to the creation of good jobs in the private sector of the partner country. The Facility only finances mature projects that have not yet started and that offer reasonable chances for being operationally and financially sustainable. The Call for Proposals is open to all sectors of the economy.

The Call for Proposals in Morocco is seeking applications for four types of investment projects:

The Facility Investing for Employment supports projects with grants ranging from 1 million to 10 million euros per project.
