Australian Government Capital Grants Program
The Independent Schools Block Grant Authority of Tasmania (ISBGAT) is the authority in the State administering the Capital Grants Program (CGP) and the Tasmanian State Government Capital Assistance Program (SBGA).
In previous years, grants were awarded in the Investing in Our Schools Program 2005-2008 (completed in 2009), Building the Education Revolution (BER), the National Secondary Schools Computer Fund Rounds 1 and 2, the Digital Education Revolution (DER) and funding under the Trade Training Centres Program (TTC) in the independent school sector on behalf of the Australian Government.
Each year, under the Capital Grants Program, ISBGAT invites applications from member schools for grants towards projects. Successful applicants receive grants normally spread over the three years following the year of application.
ISBGAT is a private company in which IST owns all the three shares. Whilst ISBGAT operates under the authority of and within the terms of reference provided by the IST Board, it is a separately incorporated body and operates independently of the normal responsibility and functioning of IST. The ISBGAT Committee is composed of appropriately qualified representatives from the community and from member schools. Contact us for more information on Grants.
