Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders-family violence program
(Question No 1083)
Dr Foskey asked the Minister for Disability and Community Services, upon notice, on 3 May 2006:
(1) Has the ACT Government been successful in its application to the Australian Government's Family Violence Partnership Program; if not, what were the reasons the Australian Government gave for not awarding a grant to the ACT Government; if so, (a) what are the details of the grant, including the Australian Government funding amount and manner in which the grant must be spent and (b) what local indigenous groups are involved;
(2) If a grant was awarded, which local indigenous groups is the ACT Government currently consulting with about the program and what is the method of consultation.
Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) No. The Department of Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaCSIA) advised the application was declined on the basis that "the proposal was assessed against others in the context of the resources available during the round of funding and the Department (FaCSIA) is unable to provide funding at this time".
