Allocation of funds

Funding allocations are based on student visits and calculated as follows:

  • Base + per visitation rate x number of weighted visitations.

Where:

  • Base is determined as follows:
    • Residential - EECs that cater for day and night visits
    • Non-residential - EECs that cater for day visits only
  • Weighted visitations are determined as follows:
    • day visitations are weighted by 1 (e.g. 40 student days = 40)
    • night visitations are weighted by 2 (e.g. 80 student nights = 160).
