You should have now received an email from the Department of Education, Skills & Employment (DESE) stating that applications are open for Round 3 of the Community Child Care Fund (CCCF) Open Competitive grant.

Applications close at 11pm (AEDT) Monday, 22 February 2021.

The grant is for child care services in vulnerable and disadvantaged communities, and provides funding in three categories:

  1. Sustainability support to help a service remain viable and sustainable
  2. Community support to identify and address community-level barriers to child care participation so more children can attend child care
  3. Capital support that contributes to the cost of modifying, renovating, extending or building child care facilities that results in more child care places where there is unmet demand.
