Critical Infrastructure Programme
The Critical Infrastructure Programme (CIP) is a cost sharing grant, supporting the construction of infrastructure projects. The grant provides for an incentive of 10% to 30% of the infrastructure project cost, limited to a maximum benefit of R 30 million. Qualifying projects are ultimately required to be a level 4 BB-BEE contributor.
Qualifying infrastructure projects need to demonstrate that they ultimately facilitate increased trade. Examples of qualifying projects include:
Application for the CIP should be made prior to the infrastructure construction commencing.
