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.
