Funding can only be used for purposes that are directly related to the provision of a chaplaincy/student welfare service in the school for which funds are provided and the type of service the school was successful in receiving funding for (i.e. chaplaincy or student welfare service).

Schools will be expected to comply with any State or Commonwealth reporting requirements.
