In the 2011 - 2013 phase, the GCF plans to fund 50-60 projects of non-State businesses in eight provinces and cities with a non-refundable aid of VND216 billion (US$10.3 million) and a counterpart contribution of VND164 billion. Each province will have 8-10 projects funded by the CGF from VND400 million to VND8 billion, depending on scale and type.
