State Capital Assistance Scheme

The object of the State Capital Assistance Scheme (SCAS) is to assist eligible independent schools to construct, convert, refurbish and upgrade educational facilities and boarding facilities. 

The focus of the scheme is on the educational facility needs of schools and the ability of the school authority and community to meet those needs.

School and Project Eligibility

Schools eligible to apply for SCAS funding may also be eligible to apply for Australian Government Capital Grants Program (CGP) funding. 

Making an Application

To make an application for both SCAS and CGP funds,  Approved Authorities will need to submit an Excel-based application avaliable on request from the QIS BGA Office. 

There are many documents and resources available to assist applicant schools to complete the application for a capital grant. Understanding the application process can also benefit the accuracy and quality of information provided by the Approved Authority through the application process.

Legislation, Guidelines and QIS BGA Procedures

QIS BGA implements the Queensland Government's legislation and guidelines for the administration of SCAS.  In addition to this, there are QIS BGA assessment principles used in the analysis of applications for capital assistance.
