Start Strong Capital Works - Crisis Fund

ClosedGrant Closed: 30th of June 2022 Value: Undisclosed Run By: NSW Government Department of Education Further Information: https://education.nsw.gov.au/early-childhood-education/operating-an-early-childhood-education-service/grants-and-funded-programs/capital-works-grants/crisis-fund

The Start Strong Capital Works Grants Program improves access to preschool by creating additional community preschool places in areas of need and demand across the state.

Eligible not-for-profit organisations can apply for grant funding to build, renovate or extend their facilities to deliver a community preschool, respond to a crisis situation, or to purchase a vehicle for a mobile preschool.

The Start Strong Capital Works Grants Program has been revised to improve the suitability and accessibility of the program for the community preschool sector. This includes four distinct grant categories with continuous, extended or multiple rounds, making it easier for community preschool providers to access the right funding option when it is needed.

The Crisis Fund supports the maintenance and creation of community preschool places where there is an urgent need for capital works in at least one of the following circumstances:

  • An existing service is facing closure or relocation due to exceptional or unforeseen circumstances, for example, compulsory acquisition of premises.
  • An existing service is impacted by a natural disaster or state of emergency and is required to undertake urgent structural remediation work.
  • An eligible organisation wants to operate a centre-based community preschool in a remote or very remote area (as per the ARIA index) where access to preschool education is limited or non-existent.

Requests for this grant are received all year round or until funds are exhausted.
