Private Sector Utility Assistance 2021
The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) would like to advise our valued customers that the Fijian Government’s Private Sector Utility Assistance (PSUA) program will continue in 2021, and those interested are urged to apply as soon as possible.
The PSUA is an initiative to spur construction and job creation by private sector investors, under which utility-related development costs, such as WAF connection costs, will be subsidised by the Fijian Government for micro, small and medium enterprises.
Fijians who wish to apply are urged to do so as soon as possible, since the grant will be given to recipients on a “first come, first serve” basis, as a total of $1 million funding has been allocated for the initiative in the 2021-2022 financial year.
The PSUA will be made available based on the criteria below:
New or existing enterprises earning less than $50,000 annually – Government will subsidise 100% for WAF connection (trenching cost).
New and existing small enterprises earning between $50,000 and $300,000 annually – Government will subsidise 70% for WAF connection (trenching cost).
New and existing medium enterprises earning between $300,000 and $1,250,000 annually – Government will subsidise 50% for WAF connection (trenching cost).
For further clarification, contact WAF Chief Operations Officer Mr Soderberg via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call on 9104060.
