CDB Involvement

Grenada joined the CDB in 1970. In 2015 approvals for funding totaled USD35,740 million in loans, secondary mortgages, equity and grants. USD8, 608 million of this was funded by the Special Development Fund Unified (SDFU). CDB funding in Grenada is used for financing social and economic infrastructure such as schools, road and water projects, providing disaster-resistant structures, and community skills training and empowerment. CDB funded projects are administered through the Basic Needs Trust Fund Office in Grenada, as well as various Government Ministries. Projects are also done in collaboration with locally-led village councils, non-profit organisations and other community and civic groups.
