The 2016-17 Shared Facilities Fund helps to develop community facilities on school sites across Victoria. The funding allocated through this program will deliver funding to schools, councils and other institutions to develop shared facilities arrangements. This funding can be used to implement a range of community infrastructure projects on school sites, including early learning centres, sporting facilities and community hubs.
In the 2016-17 State budget, the Government invested $50 million into the Shared Facilities Fund (SFF). Co-located and shared facilities build a sense of collective purpose between school and community. They facilitate diverse and positive learning experiences, increasing family involvement in children’s school and improving attendance and achievement of students. They build a sense of community and foster improved connectivity with schools.
The SFF will complement other government infrastructure investments in communities and will build partnerships with local councils. This program is overseen by the Deputy Premier and the State Treasurer, and administered by the Department of Education and Training.
