Have always wanted to know what the conditions to the Municipal grants are? now you can access the conditions on vulekamali.
Conditional grants have been used in South Africa to transfer funding from national to provinces and municipalities, for the purpose of achieving specific national government policy objectives. This mechanism is especially important in South Africa, where the Constitution provides for equal access to basic public services, such as health, education, water, and welfare.
In addition to the conditional grants, they receive municipalities and provinces are also entitled to “an equitable share of revenue that was raised nationally”, according to Section 214(1) of the Constitution. Equitable shares are unconditional (not specific) and enable provinces and municipalities to provide the services and fulfil their functions.
The Conditional Grant Frameworks are published as annexures to the Division of Revenue Bill and then gazetted once the act is signed into law. These frameworks set the rules for how the funds can be used and support the administration and oversight of conditional grants.
