Dr Southcott asked the Minister for Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, in writing, on 2 September 2008:

How much funding is provided for each Community Development Employment Projects participant, and what is this funding dependent on?


Ms Macklin (Minister for Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

CDEP Wage Funds are paid to CDEP providers based on the actual number of registered CDEP participants engaged in approved activities.

The provider is responsible for payments to CDEP participants that are active on CDEP activities, and each CDEP participant must be given the opportunity to earn (as a minimum) the Average Per Participant (APP) rate.  Refer to the table below for 2008-09 APP rates.
