JOBS FUND OPENS THIRD CALL FOR PROPOSALS (2012-12-03)
The Jobs Fund opened a third Call for proposals on the 3 December.
Interested organisations are required to submit a concept note by 5pm on 15
Only applications for the following two funding windows are invited:
Why only two windows?
Since opening in June 2011 the Jobs Fund has received over 3,500
applications and has been oversubscribed in some windows. As a result it is
only opening the enterprise development and infrastructure windows for this
funding phase. Once this funding window closes and applications have been
reviewed, the Investment Committee will review the balance of applications
across the Fund and determine which areas will be open for future funding.
Applicants should keep an eye on the website and media for future funding
