10 Another important potential funder for the Mogale City Local Municipality is the Neighbourhood Development Partnership Grant (NDPG). This is a new and unique grant offered by the National Treasury to municipalities for developments that provide community infrastructure that leverages private sector development physically focusing on target areas that include: Townships that were originally created as separate areas for Black people. Generally located on the periphery of towns and cities Low-income housing estates, which are generally not fully functional neighbourhoods Informal settlements The NDPG is available both as a Technical Assistance (TA) grant and a Capital Grant (CG), with the intention that the National Treasury and the municipality engage in a strategic alliance to deliver the successful project, with a certain measure of security of capital for local government investment identified at early stages of project preparation. The typical ideal project demonstrates a critical mass of both community and commercial development. The council would drive the development of project packages and the establishment of key, appropriate community infrastructure and the creation of the platform for commercial development.
