The Victorian Government is embarking on the largest ever investment in early childhood infrastructure in the State's history.
As we continue to build and expand early childhood facilities through our Building Blocks grant program, the Victorian Government is also providing funding towards projects that enhance the condition of existing kindergartens, ensuring they are modern, safe and fit-for-purpose.
The $30 million Refurbishment and Minor Works program improves the learning environments, condition or character of Victoria's kindergartens.
The program is a short-term initiative, which aims to stimulate the local economy by funding projects that support local jobs and communities.
Eligible organisations can apply for grants up to $50,000 for minor projects or $500,000 for major projects.
Funds can be used for minor upgrades or refurbishments such as playground upgrades, roof repairs, landscaping, installing accessible ramps, fencing, kitchen or staffroom upgrades. For more information, please refer to the guidelines below.
Applications Applications for the Refurbishment and Minor Works Program open from 14 December 2020 and close on 28 February 2021 at 11:59 p.m.
Applications can be made via the smartygrants online application system.
