Since 2008, the BMUB has been funding climate action projects on the basis of a guideline on promoting climate action projects in social, cultural and public organisations under the National Climate Initiative ("local authority guideline"). A total of 8,000 projects in around 3,000 local authorities have already been supported.

Based on this local authority guideline, advisory services, development of climate action concepts, climate action management schemes and investment measures to promote climate change mitigation have been supported. Funding for the local authority guideline has been significantly increased as part of the Climate Action Programme 2020, like the Funding for investment-based climate action projects. New priority areas here include LED street lighting, along with investment measures in schools, children’s daycare facilities, leisure and sports facilities and swimming pools.
