  • Infrastructure & Capital Funding

    Catholic Education Melbourne provides administrative support to Catholic Capital Grants (Victoria) Ltd.

    CCG (Vic) Ltd is the legal entity that has the responsibility for the receipt and distribution of funds to Victorian Catholic schools under a suite of government programs that are primarily associated with capital development.  CCG has a number of administrative responsibilities associated with these programs including: reporting and accountability to government, assisting schools to develop project proposals, receipt and assessment of project applications, making funding recommendations to the government and, once approved, monitoring funded projects.

    This work is aligned to the following funding programs:

    • Capital Grants Programme – to provide and improve school capital infrastructure, particularly for the most educationally disadvantaged students. 
    • Victorian Government Capital Funding Program – will reach schools with the greatest facilities needs to assist in creating contemporary educational spaces that meet the teaching and learning needs of the school.
    • Supplementary Capital Fund (SCF) – this Archdiocesan program is designed to assist Primary schools who have demonstrated the need to undertake infrastructure development projects, and have been unsuccessful in attracting assistance under the government funding programs administered by Catholic Capital Grants (Victoria) Ltd.
