To assist Outdoor and Environmental Education Centres with site-specific issues.
Duration of program
Outdoor and Environmental Education Centres with site-specific issues.
Allocation of funds
The total annual budget for distribution is $74,000. Eligible centres receive a fixed amount each year.
During 2019, the Chair of the Outdoor Environmental and Education Centres Principal Alliance (OEECPA) and the Department discussed a review of the Site Specific—Environmental and Outdoor Education Centres school appropriation funding. A proposal was developed outlining the new application and selection for this program.
In September 2019, the OEECPA endorsed the proposal, including the panel members for the 2020–21 application process.
Schools that were successful with their applications and will receive funding in 2020 and 2021 are the following: North Keppel Island EEC, Moreton Bay EEC, Jacobs Well EEC, Toohey, Urban and Columboola EEC, and Barrambah EEC.
How to apply
During September and October 2019, funding applications were open to all Outdoor Environmental and Education Centres (OEEC). The successful schools for the 2020 and 2021 schools years were notified in November 2019.
Entitlements for these schools will be automatically paid each year as per the timeline above.
The new application and selection process will be run every 2 years.
