Delivery partners who wish to apply for the Consolidated Capital Grant (CCG) must submit projects to the SHRA pipeline in order to go through the project accreditation process. The project accreditation process entails submission of the QSB (assessment of the project) and QSC (project financial viability).
All projects submitted must have provincial support and be located within a restructuring zone. Projects that are not suitable for social housing will be pulled out of the project pipeline. Projects that meet the investment criteria will be recommended to the SHRA Council for consideration. Approved projects will qualify for a CCG of R328 687 per unit (up to a maximum of 70% of the total cost of the project). Delivery partners can fund the balance through a combination of debt funding and own equity while ODAs must contribute a minimum of 20% own of their own equity. Projects that need assistance with meeting the SHRA’s requirements will be recommended to the Sector Development and Transformation unit (SD&T) for support.
To accredit a project for the SHRA, follow the following steps:
- Step 1: Send an introductory email bout the project you would like to register to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Step 2: You will then receive an acknowledgement letter with further instructions on what documents are required (i.e. BBBEE certificate, I.D copies, etc.).
- Step 3: After submitting the required documents, you will then be given a project application pack which contains the our Quick Scan A, B and C tools for you to populate.
- Step 4: Once these tools have been populated, you will need to submit them on the same email address provided above. Through this last step you would have successfully registered onto the SHRA’s pipeline and receive confirmation thereof.
