The objective of the 1,000 Jobs Package is to get Community Development Program (CDP) participants into new ongoing work and to support greater economic development in remote Australia.
Through the 1,000 Jobs Package, the Australian Government will subsidise 1,000 new jobs for CDP participants across remote Australia, through a combination of wage subsidies and retention bonuses.
A total of $5.5 million for 100 job subsidies over two years is available for Tranche One, starting in September 2019.
Subsidy payments will be paid directly to the employer.
Funding for the program will come from the Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS). The IAS contributes to Closing the Gap (CtG) between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians by providing grant funding for activities that address areas of need for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people that align with CtG targets.
