Data Collections Capital Funding

UPDATE: The Department wishes to advise the Capital Grants Program will continue as scheduled for 2020. Block Grant Authorities are required to provide the department with their project recommendations and financial records consistent with the usual annual calendar.

The Capital Grants Program (CGP) provides non-government schools the opportunity to apply for additional Australian Government funding to improve school infrastructure.

To be eligible to apply for a capital grant, Catholic and independent schools will need to be member of the relevant block grant authority in their state or territory. Schools apply on a competitive need basis to the block grant authority, and BGAs recommend projects to the Australian Government.

Funding can be used for a wide range of infrastructure projects, from the planning stage to fit out stage. Typically, projects funded include school master-planning, new or refurbished general learning areas, subject specific classrooms, libraries, administration, multipurpose halls and outdoor learning areas.

For more information about the CGP application process, contact your Block Grant Authority.

The Australian Government provided approximately $1.4 billion between 2008 and 2017 under the Trade Training Centres in Schools Program (TTC Program) to establish Trade Training Centres and Trades Skills Centres.

The TTC Program provides students with a broad range of options to help improve Year 12 or equivalent attainment and enhance pathways into vocational careers. Funding has been provided for buildings and equipment. Recipients are responsible for recurrent costs.
