Targeted support to to non-government schools impacted by floods

In response to the recent floods the Australian Government will provide $5 million under the Non-Government Reform Support Fund (NGRSF) to provide targeted support to non-government schools affected by the recent flood emergency events in New South Wales and Queensland.

Funding is specifically for the purposes of supporting educational outcomes for students in Catholic and Independent schools impacted by the floods in the flood declared Local Government Areas of New South Wales and Queensland.

Funding will be directed through the Associations of Independent Schools and Catholic Education Commissions in New South Wales and Queensland that are approved as non-government representative bodies (NGRBs). The distribution of flood support funds will be guided by the NGRBs in consultation with their member schools to ensure assistance can be provided as quickly as possible to support to flood affected schools and school communities.
