The Victorian Government is fixing old buildings, delivering extra classrooms and building 10 new schools in a statewide construction blitz that is creating thousands of jobs and kickstarting Victoria’s economy.
This investment adds to the $515 million Maintenance Blitz to ensure all existing buildings are safe, modern and properly maintained - the single largest boost to school maintenance ever undertaken.
As part of this fantastic initiative, I am delighted to launch the $20 million Minor Capital Works Fund to bring forward small priority projects identified by government schools. The Victorian economy will benefit from these small projects across regions, creating local jobs to aid our recovery from the coronavirus.
I encourage all government schools to apply and look forward to seeing details of your project proposals.
