Call For Project Proposals: Environmental Protection & Infrastructure Programmes (EPIP)

Background The Department of Environmental Affairs, through the Environmental Protection and Infrastructure Programmes (EPIP), is implementing projects that address a myriad of environmental challenges whilst creating the much needed jobs in the environmental sector under the auspices of the Expanded Public Works Programmes (EPWP). The main objectives of the programmes are Better Environmental Management Practices; Job Creation; Skills Development; and Strengthening Support for Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMMEs). Standard requirements applicable to all focus areas for Infrastructure and Mass Employment Projects: • The projects must originate from public bodies, including DEA branches, municipalities, public entities, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Community-Based Organisations (CBOs), co-operatives, other Government Departments, Communal Property Associations (CPAs) and traditional authorities.

• If applicable, the projects must be supported, endorsed and be part of the Municipal Integrated Development Plans (IDPs). A council resolution on each project or a letter of endorsement from the Municipality (signed by an Accounting Officer or delegated authority) is required. • Projects must be aligned to the objectives of the Provincial Growth and Development Strategy (PGDS) and or the provincial plans. A letter of support should be obtained from the Provincial Department signed by the delegated authority. • Should there be a requirement for the exclusive use of land for the project implementation, confirmation of land ownership in a form of a title deed and/or endorsement from the land owner(s) should be obtained in the form of a joint resolution, where applicable. • The project concept must advance the mandate of DEA and contribute to the development plan of the country. • In the event that the public entity’s property is maintained by the Department of Public Works (DPW), the Project Proponent/Owning Entity must receive an endorsement for the development from DPW. Submission of applications: Complete the online application form accessible at: http://applications.environment.gov.za/EPIP/ Authenticate.aspx.
