Posted in Seeking by Devin Maeztri on May 14th, 2009
The $650 million is part of the Governments Jobs and Training Compact. The Jobs Fund will support and create jobs and improve skills, by funding projects that build community infrastructure and create social capital in local communities.
The Jobs Fund comprises three streams of funding:
- $300 million Local Jobs stream to support community infrastructure projects with a focus on the promotion of environment-friendly technology and heritage
- $ 200 million Get Communities Working stream for self-sustaining projects which create jobs and provide activities and services to improve community amenity
- $150 million Infrastructure Employment Projects stream for investment in infrastructure projects which generate jobs in regions affected by the economic downturn
