Local Recovery Fund

On this page:

Stakeholders are encouraged to work in collaboration with local Employment Facilitators and Local Jobs and Skills Taskforces to develop Local Recovery Fund proposals that best address the priorities identified in the Jobs Plan for their region.  Proposed activities should be designed to address employment and training priorities and identify opportunities to better skill participants to meet local employer demand.

These may be a discrete activity, or a component of a larger activity, or may fill a gap in an existing activity that is directed to meeting identified priorities. Preference may be given to proposals that reflect one or more of the following:

  • feedback from key local stakeholders
  • connect directly with multiple priorities of the Jobs Plan for the Employment Region
  • involve collaboration with key stakeholders and service providers to meet one or more priorities in the Jobs Plan

All proposals must identify an eligible Employment Services Provider as a Local Jobs Program Activity Partnering Provider.

Details for approved activities under the Local Recovery Fund are available on individual Employment Region pages.

For further information, contact an Employment Facilitator or email localjobs@dese.gov.au or contact the department.
