Proposals must demonstrate that they contribute to the following outcome:
- Improved local policies, plans and designs for safe, inclusive and accessible public spaces for all which supports more compact, better integrated and well connected, socially inclusive and resilient cities and neighbourhoods in partner cities.

Each Implementing Partner can receive up to $100,000 for the full portfolio, including administrative costs.
