Minister for Home Affairs and Minister for Justice Jason Clare reminded local councils and not-for-profit community groups to apply for grants from the National Crime Prevention Fund which close next Wednesday 29 May.
The program offers free expert training for local businesses and not-for-profit organisations to help them take full advantage of the opportunities provided through the National Broadband Network (NBN). This is the fifth round of the Digital Enterprise Program, with the Government providing an additional $7.2million in the Budget to extend the program to another 23 NBN rollout communities.
The Minister for Social Inclusion Mark Butler and the Minister for Community Services Julie Collins are encouraging all Australians to share their stories as part of National Volunteer Week celebrations.
The Digital Enterprise program will provide total grant funding of $10 million to help not-for-profit organisations in over 40 communities that benefit from the National Broadband Network (NBN) to better understand how they can maximise the opportunities from greater digital engagement, enabled by the NBN.
