Cofinancing conditions

The partners' commitment to responsible business conduct is a key factor for being selected for BPF co-financing.

BPF co-financing is awarded on the basis of a two-stage call for proposals issued twice a year. The projects selected at the end of the process are co-financed up to a maximum of 50%, with a ceiling of €200,000, in the form of a non-refundable direct grant paid in two or three instalments.

This co-financing, initiated and financed by the Luxembourg Cooperation, falls within the scope of so-called "de minimis" aid: aid granted by a Member State to a company, the cumulative amount of which may not exceed a ceiling of €200,000 over a three-year period.

Key figures

Following initiatives taken by other European countries to support the private sector in developing countries, the Luxembourg Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs (MAEE) launched the BPF in 2016.

Since its launch, the BPF has proved increasingly popular with the private sector, and the MAEE has extended the facility until 2028.
