Communities for Children requirements
This information is for organisations running programs funded by the Department of Social Services (DSS) under the Communities for Children Facilitating Partners sub-activity of the Families and Children Activity.
If your organisation is not funded under Communities for Children, this section isn’t for you. For general information about delivery quality programs for families and children, see the Program Planning and Evaluation Guide.
50% evidence-based program requirement
Under the Communities for Children Facilitating Partners sub-activity, Facilitating partners work with Community partners to deliver programs and services.
In 2017, DSS introduced a requirement that Facilitating Partners allocate at least 50% of their funding to high-quality evidence-based programs.
There are two ways Facilitating Partners can meet this requirement:
