Funding boost for Schools

Applications now open

Non-government schools across Western victoria including Hamilton and Portland have been granted a benefit on behalf of a new round of the Andrews Government’s $402 million Non-Government Schools Capital Fund.

Member for Western Victoria, Jaala Pulford, announced the funding and says local schools can now apply for the second round of the fund, for projects such as building new schools and increasing capacity or upgrading facilities at existing schools. It also supports removal of asbestos and cladding in these schools.

Last year, round one of the fund delivered more than $73 million in funding to 28 projects in the Catholic and independent school sector.

Pulford said the Government was delivering record funding across both Government and independent schools to make sure all kids in Western Victoria get the best facilities.

Pulford further stated, the Government was delivering record funding across both Government and independent schools to make sure all kids in Western Victoria get the best facilities. “Every student in Western Victoria deserves access to great school facilities and with more than a third of Victorian students attending non-government schools they’ll be sharing in our record investment.”

The funding is part of a record $1.82 billion investment in Victoria’s education infrastructure in the Victorian Budget 2019/20 – delivering on the promise to make Victoria the Education State.

Non-government schools can apply for grants between $50,000 and $5 million.
