The Gauteng Partnership Fund (GPF) as an implementing agency of the Gauteng Department of Human Settlements is dedicated to facilitating spatial transformation and modernisation of sustainable human settlements in Gauteng through the establishment of strategic partnerships for innovative funding solutions and accelerated delivery through effective project implementation.

Through the provision of dignified shelter that is located close to job opportunities, transport nodes and social amenities we can create viable and sustainable communities and improve the quality of life of the people of Gauteng.

The core mandate of the GPF is to raise and manage the capital required for the successful implementation of identified sustainable human settlements in Gauteng.

Enhancing the lives of people in communities while also providing investors and partners with sound returns is important.
