The High-Level Technology (HLT) Fund was established in 2017 to provide grant financing for promoting the integration of high-level technology and innovative solutions into ADB projects addressing development challenges. The Government of Japan is the first donor to the fund.

The HLT Fund supports various modalities including additional financing to ADB’s Investment Project (such as sovereign loans) or to Technical Assistance. It also supports the program called Technology Innovation Challenge, where technology providers can directly participate in proposing the pilot projects.
