27 JulTerm 3 cleaning grants and grants for infectious cleans
The Department of Education and Training will shortly transfer COVID-19 cleaning and hygiene grants to all funded kindergarten service providers for Term 3. In line with previous COVID-19 cleaning and hygiene grants:
- service providers have flexibility on how to use this funding, so long as it is spent on meeting additional COVID-19-related cleaning and hygiene requirements during Term 3
- service providers with fewer than 50 enrolments will receive $900 while those with 50 or more enrolments will receive $1,500.
Additional funding will also be available for services across Victoria that are required to close and undertake an infectious clean as a result of a confirmed case of COVID-19. For each room where kindergarten programs are delivered, $1,500 will be provided towards the cost of an infectious clean. This is on top of the cleaning and hygiene grants that will be provided to all funded kindergarten services.
