Transformative Actions Program (TAP)



The Transformative Actions Program (TAP) led by ICLEI is a project pipeline and a project preparation facility representing approx 100 projects and 3bn euro investment potential. Projects in the pipeline can benefit from TAP services offered by ICLEI and partners (13) aiming to support low-carbon and climate-resilient local projects to become bankable and access finance.


Assistance Criteria

Projects need to show high-level transformative potential along the three dimensions as defined by ICLEI: ambitious, cross-cutting, inclusive.



As ICLEI has no funds on its own, the amount of support provided depends per funder with Technical Assistance typically between  EUR 100,000 – 500,000.
