  • Located in the City of Ekurhuleni.

The fund is a component of the Ekurhuleni 10- Point Economic Plan – which is the footprint of the regional economy’ stimulus and economic relief programme to drive the local economic development and transformation agenda for the benefit of the community of Ekurhuleni.
