New Funding Approach for 2024Applications
This year, in terms of Section 14 (1)(a) of the MDDA Act, we are calling on all organisations owned or focused on youth, women and persons with disabilities to submit applications for the 2024 grant funding call.
The MDDA is recruiting from the following provinces : Northern Cape; North West; ; Mpumalanga and Eastern Cape and will rotate the provinces in the next call. Our new approach seeks to make a meaningful impact by zoning in on specific provinces and working to fulfil our mandate of redressing the exclusion and marginalisation of disadvantaged communities and persons from access to the media; and to continue promoting media development and diversity in the community and small commercial print sector.
