Special Circumstances - School hygiene assistance fund

Thursday 14 May 2020


The Australian Government will provide an additional $10 million to improve COVID-19 hygiene measures in non-government schools that plan to have 50 per cent of their students back in the classroom by 1 June 2020. The Special Circumstances funding will be available to school to help cover hygiene costs for items such as soap, hand sanitiser, classroom cleaning products and additional cleaning costs. Funding is intended to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and is expected to be paid in June 2020.
