My eCAFs

An eCAF is an electronic version of the Commonwealth Assistance Form. To find out about the types of assistance available and the eligibility criteria view Government assistance.

You will need to submit an eCAF for each type of loan you would like.

Your fee liability category will determine which type of loan you may be eligible for and which eCAF to complete.

If you have completed an eCAF and you need to add updated details, you can complete another one and it will replace the previous one.
