Are you a business based in a Community Development Program (CDP) area? If so, you may be eligible for wage subsidies under the 1,000 Jobs Package. Applications are now open.
The 1,000 Jobs Package offers wage subsidies to employ Community Development Program (CDP) participants in new jobs across remote Australia. Employers will be eligible to receive financial support of up to $56,000 (GST not applicable) over two years, including retention bonuses to help them hire new staff in ongoing positions.
Positions must be filled by current CDP participants to be eligible for this funding. The 1,000 Jobs Package will be implemented in two tranches. Tranche One will cease when all positions are filled or when Tranche Two commences, whichever comes first. A second tranche of the 1,000 Jobs Package comprising the remainder of the 1,000 jobs will be available from 1 December 2019.
