The Rapid Response Fund (“RRF”) is a Programme of the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (“the dtic”) to offer financially impacted qualifying applicants an opportunity to access short-term funding to mitigate the effects of disruptions due to unrest in July 2021 to retain or save jobs. The programme is administered by the CTCP Desk (“Desk”) at the IDC on behalf of the dtic.

Applications may be submitted on an ongoing basis from September 2021 up to 31 March 2022.


The Competitiveness Improvement Programme (CIP) is administered by the Clothing & Textiles Competitiveness Programme (CTCP) Desk at the IDC. The CIP aims, through the cluster approach, to create a group of globally competitive companies that would ensure a sustainable business environment able to retain and grow employment levels. Two different cluster compositions will be supported, namely an ordinary cluster and a national cluster, preferably supported by subnational (previously known as regional) clusters. Interventions should include innovative plans focused on people, process, product and market development.
