Feasibility studies and technical assistance accelerate project identification and preparation to better attract and support private investment in development outcomes

In most cases, grants for feasibility studies and technical assistance will be designed to increase the developmental impact or improve the commercial sustainability of a project that has received, or may receive, DFC financing or insurance support. The program complements and does not duplicate work funded by other agencies or financiers.

DFC determines the technical assistance, feasibility study, or training work to be provided, and the grant recipient selects an entity with relevant expertise and experience that will perform that work.  In addition, the program provides technical assistance for certain development credit activities requested by other agencies by utilizing a competitively-selected pool of contractors. 

A current or potential DFC client that has submitted an application for DFC financing or insurance support can inform DFC of the client’s interest in the program at or following the time of submission of that application.

For more information, please contact DFC’s Technical Assistance, Feasibility Studies, and Training Office or the DFC business line office that is your primary DFC contact point.
