The Victorian Government's Non-Government Schools Capital Fund 2019-20 to 2022-23
Non-government schools are an important part of Victoria's education system, with over one-third of Victorian students studying at catholic or independent schools.
The Victorian Government has committed $402 million over the next four years to upgrade and build new, catholic and independent schools across the state. This funding will be allocated over four grant rounds, with approximately $100 million worth of grants allocated in each round.
Under the approved governance model for the program, the Department of Education and Training will enter into separate funding agreements with both school sectors, Catholic Capital Grants (Victoria) Ltd (CCG) and the Victorian Independent Schools Block Grant Authority (VIS BGA) to manage the program for schools in their respective sectors.
The first of four annual grant rounds are now open. Applications for Round 1 close on Friday, 5 July 2019. The first successful projects will be announced in December 2019.
Who can apply?Non-government schools can apply for grants between $50,000 and $5 million for projects such as building new schools and expanding capacity at existing schools or upgrading existing learning facilities at your school. Funding is also available for the planned removal of asbestos and/cladding.
