A new grants round has opened for Southside schools. Up to $200,000 is being made available in our electorate to help schools with new equipment, building projects or additional targeted support.
The Griffith Local Schools Community Fund will offer grants between $1,000 and $20,000 to contribute to a variety of school projects and associated costs.
The Fund has opened for applications. Schools may lodge one application for each of their campuses, so it’s important that the project identified delivers a real benefit for their local school community.
The Griffith Local Schools Community Fund is open to government, Independent and Catholic schools, but eligibility conditions will apply, and proposed projects will be assessed by my local consultative committee, which will have representation from each of the Catholic, independent and public school sectors.
Projects could include small-scale extensions or classroom refurbishments, new computer facilities, mental health and counselling services, playground equipment, library resources, or sports facilities.
Applications will be through SchoolsHUB, at https://schools.education.gov.au/. Schools may submit one application for up to $20,000 funding for each of their campuses. Applications close on 30 September 2019 and projects must be completed by the end of 2020.
