AMMAN — A World Bank (WB) delegation on Tuesday visited the Greater Mafraq Municipality as part of a tour organised by the Innovative Start-ups Fund for Municipalities project, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The programme focuses on Jordanian governorates and municipalities affected by the influx of Syrian refugees, according to Petra. It is implemented by the Municipal Affairs Ministry through the Cities and Villages Development Bank, an official statement said, with 27 municipalities competing over grants for local development projects.

Mafraq Mayor Amer Dughmi said the visit serves to clarify the application process for the competing projects. He added that the WB is offering seven $1-million grants to the competing municipalities in the Mafraq Governorate.
