The Coalition Government is supporting job seekers in remote Australia with our reforms to the Community Development Program (CDP).
I was in Galiwinku today to make this announcement about changes to Australia’s remote employment and community development service which will be rolled out from March this year to facilitate greater employment outcomes for remote job seekers.
The first phase one of the reforms include increasing flexibility for job seekers to complete their mutual obligation requirements, reducing participation hours to up to 20 hours per week, changing the provider payment model to incentivise greater engagement and job outcomes, establishing a capital investment fund and building community engagement.
These reforms will build on the success achieved to date - lifting participation from 7 per cent under Labor’s program to 74 per cent today and delivering over 29,000 jobs. #CDPsuccess #indigenous
