Rudd’s $650 million Jobs Fund

In order to support the economy and Australian jobs, the Rudd Government has unveiled a new $650 million Jobs Fund to support jobs, build skills and improve facilities in local communities.

The new Jobs Fund is part of the Rudd Government’s Jobs and Training Compact, which builds on the $42 billion stimulus package.

The Jobs Fund includes $300 million for Local Jobs to invest in community projects that help protect the environment or promote sustainability; $200 million to ‘Get Communities Working’ which will invest in local council and non-for-profit projects; and $150 million for Infrastructure Employment Projects for the construction of infrastructure which will create jobs for those affected by the global downturn.

According to the Government, the projects will encourage local government, community organisations, employers and employment service providers to work together to give people employment or training opportunities in their local area.
