$100 Creative Kids vouchers get creative for Clarence and Richmond Valley children

Social distancing rules shouldn’t stop Clarence and Richmond Valley children learning new skills and that is why the NSW Government are investing an extra $1 million to take the popular $100 Creative Kids initiative digital, according to Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis.

“The $100 Creative Kids vouchers build on the success of the Nationals in Government’s $100 Active Kids sports vouchers,” Mr Gulaptis said.

“What we are doing now in these very different times is to provide $1 million to help local providers make the digital transition.
The changes include:
•       $1 million to support digital adaptation grants for Creative Kids providers up to $5,000;
•       a digital toolkit to help providers pivot to online delivery;
•       extension of the use of Creative Kids vouchers for online programs and educational materials;
•       improved Service NSW website to make it easier for parents to find a provider.
Applications for the Creative Kids provider grants are now open. To be eligible, grant applicants must:
•       clearly demonstrate adaptation of Creative Kids activities to online delivery,
•       describe how this support can maintain or increase voucher redemption during COVID-19, and
•       meet the objectives of the Creative Kids program.
