RICE Update

Posted on August 9, 2018

 The Preschool program was granted a small funding increase last year, and as such, will continue unchanged for the foreseeable future. The funding agreement that supports the RICE Community Child Health Nurse has been extended for a further 6 months while a new service agreement is being negotiated. This service will continue as is until 30 December 2018. All other programs and services will continue unchanged in the immediate future while the committee undertakes a period of review and future planning. This process is currently underway, with RICE members asked to provide feedback on current services and to suggest any additions or amendments to the programs currently available. SAICPA will be looking at ways to work in collaboration with RICE to ensure the best outcome for RICE families.
