Capital Grants Programme (CGP) for Non-government Schools
This program provides funding to assist non-government primary and secondary school communities to improve capital infrastructure where they otherwise may not have access to sufficient capital resources. Non-government schools wishing to apply for CGP grants should join the relevant Block Grant Authority (BGA) in their state or territory. BGAs are incorporated bodies approved by the Minister to administer the CGP on behalf of non-government schools.
Further information regarding CGP and the BGAs contact details can be obtained from Capital Grants Programme site.
