Early years services funding to be streamlined in 2016

From 1 July 2016, early years service grants will be restructured and performance reporting will use the Results Based AccountabilityTM methodology. This process will be called Achieving results for children in Queensland (ARCQ).

ARCQ will focus on the quality of programs being delivered and the difference these programs make to the lives of Queensland children and their families.
