The Hermanus Night Shelter in Mount Pleasant recently received a welcome boost of R400 000 that will go towards adding the finishing touches to this safe house before it opens its doors.

This generous donation was made possible by the Overberg District Municipality via the Joint District and Metro Approach (JDMA) which is co-ordinated by the Department of Local Government in the Western Cape. Underpinned by the principles of co-planning, co-budgeting and co-implementation, the JDMA came about as a result of collaboration between national government, provincial government, municipalities, NGOs and the private sector with a view to improving and changing the lives and living conditions of people.

Overstrand residents currently receiving or who may qualify to receive an indigent grant are called upon to verify their information before 31 December 2021.

As we are aware that current subsidy holders may have received the subsidy in contravention of the approved Indigent Policy, we want to create an opportunity where subsidy holders can come forward and voluntarily declare this without being penalised.

One of the conditions of the Policy is that residents who are owners of more than one property, or don’t reside on the property on which the subsidy has been approved, may have to repay the subsidy received, to the Municipality.
