Before and After School Care Grant and Funding Program

Welcome to the Before and After School Care Reform Program and the Vacation Care Transition Program online grants portal.

The NSW Government is working hard to deliver on its $120 million commitment to expand access to before and after school care (BASC) for public primary school children across NSW.

The NSW Government is also committed to supporting current providers of Vacation Care (VC) across NSW whilst a review is made of the vacation care funding program’s scope and purpose beyond a transition phase in 2020-21.

For more information on the Before and After School Care Reform Program and the Vacation Care Transition Program please visit the BASC Grants website.
