Victorian schools to benefit from $450 million building fund

Victoria’s Minister for Education Ben Carroll has announced the commencement of the second application round for the Building Fund for Non-Government Schools.

Independent schools in Victoria can benefit from the $450 million fund by applying for grants of between $50,000 and $3.6 million. These grants are intended to support the expansion or enhancement of existing facilities, facilitating the upgrade and construction of modern, tailored learning environments for students.

“We are proud to support all schools across the state, as every student deserves access to a quality school close to home, regardless of their background or where they live,” said Minister Carroll.

“Building the Education State means providing all schools, including non-government schools, opportunities to keep their facilities up to date, to cater for a successful and supportive educational experience.”

This fund builds on the two previous Non-Government Schools Capital Fund programs, which since 2016 have delivered a $520 million investment to increase capacity and improve buildings for schools.

Applications for round two opened on 30 November 2023 and close on 23 February 2024.
