Ingrid Stitt opens second round of Building Blocks grants – more than $2m on offer
The Victorian Government has opened the second round of grants from the $30 million Building Blocks – Refurbishment and Minor Works program.
Grants worth more than $2.71 million will fund 32 projects at centres offering a funded kindergarten program across the state, in addition to the record $12 million already provided for 105 projects earlier this year. Thirteen projects will receive grants of up to $500,000 for major works and refurbishments, while 19 centres will receive grants of up to $50,000 for minor projects.
Funded projects will include improvements to indoor learning areas, playgrounds, staffroom upgrades, kitchen refurbishments, toilet upgrades, painting, fixing leaks, extending verandahs, landscaping and fixing or installing new fencing.
Building Blocks is a streamlined overarching funding scheme that supports early childhood providers with new and existing infrastructure and facilities for eligible three and four-year-old kindergarten services.
