Special Circumstances Funding

Special Circumstances Funding provides financial help to eligible schools when unexpected circumstances or events cause severe and temporary financial difficulty.

This help is available where the eligible school has exhausted all other sources of assistance. Schools must be capable of resuming operations in a manner satisfactory to the Department of Education and Training within two years of the financial assistance being provided.

Further information about Special Circumstances Funding can be found in the Guide to the Australian Education Act 2013.

What funds are available?

Approximately $1 million each year is available in Special Circumstances Funding. The programme is application based.
