The contribution of each country to each project will be determined on a case by case basis and funding will take the form of repayable advance in development and a repayable contribution in production.

All projects will be evaluated at the same time following the submission deadline. Projects will be evaluated and chosen by a committee comprised of representatives from the CMF and Jerusalem Development Authority through a selective process.
