Funding to develop innovation
Posted on Friday, 5 March 2004
Member for Pearce Judi Moylan is encouraging qualifying organisations to apply for Commonwealth money from the Employment Innovation Fund.
In the 2003-04 Budget the Australian Government announced the Employment Innovation Fund. The fund operates as a component of Job Network with $4 million in funding being provided over four years. Funding of up to $100,000 for a maximum of 12 months is available for individual projects.
The funding is available for organisations to develop initial innovative approaches to resolve specific labour market problems and open up employment opportunities.
Ms Moylan said anything which encouraged the expansion of employment opportunities was positive.
“It’s great to see this money going towards an area of need,” she said.
The money will not be given if an alternative source of Government funding is available to the organisation.
