Prior to 2016-17, the guidelines for Major and Minor Children’s Facilities Capital Program grants were released in unison. This year’s grants will be released as per the 2016-17 round which will allow the Department of Education and Training (the Department) to assess Minor grant applications prior to the assessment of Children’s Facilities Capital Program Major grants. This will ensure that successful recipients of Minor Grants will receive approval and funding sooner.

Applicants should take note of eligible organisations for each grant type.

The Children's Facilities Program is a competitive process and eligibility to apply for a grant does not guarantee the success of an application. Balancing of funding across Victoria will be a consideration in the allocation of capital grants.
