How to Apply

Applications can ONLY be done online and can be accessed through www.eservices.gov.za. https://www.eservices.gov.za/

The move from manual to the electronic portal is to create a track and trace management system for all MGE Open Call applications. In the past applicants have raised concerns regarding MGE Open Call application process that includes;

  1. loss and/or misplacement of applications,
  2. lack of communication, to keep the applicants frequently informed on the progress of their applications;
  3. long turnaround times;
  4. lack of traceability and monitoring of proposal in their life-cycle.

By automating the application process for funding the Department will be able to track, trace and monitor turnaround times thus speeding up the process. In addition, holdups can be identified earlier and all applicants’ SA Identity numbers can be verified through e-services portal web service. The e-system enables Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) capabilities and will send updates notifications to applicants through emails and/or SMS.
