Project Description

According to bank documents, the original project objective is to help Jordanian municipalities and host communities address the immediate service delivery impacts of Syrian refugee inflows and strengthen municipal capacity to support local economic development. The current objective of the MSSRP is to support Jordanian municipalities affected by the influx of Syrian refugees in delivering services and employment opportunities for Jordanians and Syrians.

The proposed additional financing aims to scale up activities to continue supporting municipal service delivery in the communities that are hosting large numbers of Syrian refugees. It will provide an additional funding of US $ 8.8 million: of which, US$ 8.3 million will be allocated to Component 1: Municipal Grants (for both MG Cycle 2 and IF) and US$ 0.5 million will be allocated to Component 2: Institutional Support and Project Management. Addition Financing will allow for additional number of sub-projects under component 1 and continuation of capacity building activities, partnership with ILO and functioning of PMU under component 2.

In addition to increased funding for Component 1 and Component 2, the project will also be restructured to extend the closing date by 12-months and accordingly the revised closing date of the project will be December 31, 2021.
