What is InfraFund?
InfraFund is a fast-disbursing fund created to finance a variety of interventions that enhances the implementation of IDB’s Infrastructure support in IDB borrowing member countries. Through InfrFund, the IDB expects to facilitate investment in infrastructure and guarantee a sustainable and high quality access to these services.
The Inter-American Development Bank is recognizing the lack of funding for project financing and preparation as a major bottleneck for the much-needed scaling up of infrastructure investment in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). In order to help plug this gap, the IDB has created the Infrastructure Fund (InfraFund). Access to modern infrastructure services is equally crucial for social development and economic growth. The InfraFund is dedicated to assisting public, private and mixed-capital entities in LAC in the identification, development and preparation of bankable and sustainable infrastructure projects that have the potential of reaching financial closure.
Through financial contributions, the InfraFund aims to promote the formation of public-private partnerships to increase the provision of infrastructure.
