Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 3 Hansard (30 March) . . Page.. 1002..


Canberra Islamic School

(Question No 976)

Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services, upon notice, on 8 March 2006:

(1) Did the ACT Government receive an application from the Canberra Islamic School for the Canberra Community Grants Program 2005-06 Funding Round;

(2) If an application was received, was funding granted to the Canberra Islamic School; if so, how much was granted; if funding was not granted, why not.

Mr Hargreaves

: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Yes

(2) The Canberra Community Grants Committee did not support the application, as it did not meet the eligibility criteria of the Program, which states that applications must include activities or projects that support networking at the grassroots level and address social isolation. Funding was therefore not granted and the applicant was informed in February 2006.
