Deadline for Community Child Care Fund Program now extended to 2 November 2017

By now you should have received an email from the Department of Education and Training (DET) informing you of the extended the deadline to apply for the Community Child Care Fund (CCCF) - the new deadline is now 2.00pm AEDT on Thursday 2 November 2017.

If you have not yet submitted an application for this funding and you are eligible, there's still time to apply.

ACA lobbied hard to ensure that this funding would be made available to privately-owned ECEC services, and we encourage you to read the eligibility terms and apply for funding if relevant to your services and families.

You can access information about the CCCF here. The grants application pack is available on the Community Grants Hub, along with other helpful information such as guidelines and Q&As.

If you would like further information regarding the CCCF open competitive grant opportunity, please contact the Community Grants Hub Hotline on 1800 020 283 or email
