PIDG TA supports the PIDG companies through providing grants for technical assistance and viability gap funding where needed to support projects that they develop and finance. The PIDG TA Team manages grant funding to support PIDG Companies’ activities, to meet a range of needs associated with the infrastructure project development cycle, including the assessment of potential investment opportunities and building capacity of host country partners and local investors. PIDG TA can also make up-front capital grants at financial close, through Viability Gap Funding (VGF), to support the construction phase of projects providing strong development impact. This funding is designed to reduce the costs of infrastructure projects to make economically viable projects financially viable in order to attract private finance.
PIDG TA also plays a central role to enable PIDG to initiate multi-company programmes and initiatives that are not specific to a particular company, and which align with PIDG strategic objectives. PIDG TA funding is almost exclusively deployed though the PIDG Companies.
