MPSF provides technical assistance to municipalities in Eastern Partner countries – Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Moldova – to prepare and implement bankable, sustainable and economically viable projects. Officially launched in 2014 with an initial EU contribution of EUR 12 million, the MPSF is managed by a steering committee consisting of the EIB (Secretariat and Lead Delegatee body), the European Commission (EC), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW).

The Facility aims to finance energy efficiency investment projects such as district heating, urban transport, street lighting and renewable energy as well as projects related to the water supply and sanitation and solid waste management.
