Program logic information sessions

Support for Families and Children Activity providers

As part of the Families and Children Activity funding extensions many service providers are required to develop a program logic for each of their grant activities. This requirement applies to most services delivering the following programs:

  • Budget Based Funded
  • Children and Parenting Support (CaPS) services
  • Family and Relationship Services (FaRS), including Specialised Family Violence Services
  • Family Mental Health Support Services. 

AIFS will host two information sessions for FaC providers to help you understand and meet these new requirements. 

We recommend you register for How to complete the program logic: Step by step as well to get the most out of the support on offer.

Further details are available at Families and Children Activity – Program logic requirements for FaC service providers

About this event

In this session, DSS will provide a detailed overview of the requirements followed by a Q&A. It will cover:

  • The purpose of the new program logic requirements
  • Time frames for submitting your program logic to DSS
  • How the DSS assessment process will work 
  • The criteria DSS will use to assess your program logic.

These sessions are presented in collaboration with the Department of Social Services.
