Applications for operational funding or special grants for the period from 1 July 2019 to 31 December 2019, should be submitted before the end of November 2019. This is so that they can be processed before the funding period closes on 31 December 2019.

Operational Funding

Applications for playgroup operational funding should be submitted online through the Education Resourcing System (ERS). If you have been set up with access to ERS you can log in and complete your funding request.
