Applications for grant-inaid funding now open
THE Community Participation and Action Support Unit is calling on all non-profit organisations (NPOs) and civil society organisations to submit their proposals for grant in-aid funding for the
2018/2019 financial year.

Applications for the sundry grant funding opened on 1 April 2018 and will close on 31 May 2018. Grant-in-aid Manager Brandon Pillay said the sundry grant funding was focused on supporting organisations from poor communities. “Our focus is on young people, children, women, the elderly and people with special challenges.” He said the purpose of the grant-in-aid programme is to assist NPOs with financial or material support to ensure they are able to reach people where government may not be able to. “These organisations are an extension of government. Therefore, the support we provide them through grant-in-aid will benefit communities from across eThekwini.”

Pillay said it was in this regard that “applications for grant–in–aid funding are invited from civil society organisations that are working to improve the quality of life of people within the eThekwini
Municipal area.” EThekwini Municipality provides financial and material assistance to civil society organisations that seek support for initiating and sustaining socio-economic, cultural and sporting development programmes, especially in previously disadvantaged communities.

This forms part of the Municipality’s Integrated Development Plan and social investment. Applications must reach any Regional Office / Sizakala Centre or the GIA Office in Pinetown, 3rd Floor on or before 31 May 2018. Applicants are urged to ensure that all required documentation is attached. Application forms can be obtained from ward councillors’ offices, any Regional /Sizakala Centre or from Room 311, Pinetown Civic Centre, 60 Kings Road, Pinetown.

For more information members of the public can contact Sandile Ngwane or Zami Nene on 031 311 6195 or 031 311 6171 respectively.
