The project was financed by two public banks (National Bank and Costa Rica Bank), so the signs will display the logo of these institutions. They covered project expenses of ₡600 million ($1.2 million).

The first stage of the labeling will begin along Paseo Colón in downtown San José. Authorities expect to finish the project within six months.
