RREAP funds are available to assist eligible Queensland state schools and school communities to support and enrich a curriculum that is appropriate for the educational needs of geographically isolated primary and secondary school students.
Schools are delivering a diverse range of
projects (DOCX, 282KB) that support curriculum enhancement, information and communication technology and professional development.
RREAP is administered by the Queensland Department of Education. Funding is available to state primary and secondary schools, special education and distance education facilities in designated RREAP areas in Queensland.
Individual school funding
A school's individual RREAP funding is paid through school grants payments each year. The decision-making for the school's grants payment remains the responsibility of the school and parent organisation within the school. RREAP funds are available to assist schools and school communities to support and enrich a curriculum that is appropriate for the educational needs of geographically isolated primary and secondary school students.

School cluster committee (SCC) funding
Membership on this committee consists of each school principal or their representative and one school parent organisation representative from each school in the cluster.
In the development of cluster projects, SCCs have the capacity to plan beyond a year. Unexpended funds can be carried over from one year to the next, but funds must be committed to a planned project using the SCC Committed Funds form.
