Member for Bega Andrew Constance is encouraging not-for-profit providers of out-of-school-hours care to apply for grants to expand or establish new services to provide flexible options for working families across our region.
Mr Constance said the announcement of the expansion to the criteria for the $20 million Before and After School Care Fund was a great opportunity for not for profits to apply for the $30,000 grants.
“Opening the fund to not-for-profit service providers means extra support to help community spaces offer out of school hours care and ease the burden in areas of high demand,” he said.
Minister for Early Childhood Education Sarah Mitchell said grants from the fund could be used for site modification and fit-out costs, project management, or to pay for necessary equipment to support new or expanded services.
