Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders—program funding
(Question No 540)
Mr Wall asked the Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs, upon notice, on 18 November 2015:
What is the allocation of funding/ budgeted expenditure for the (a) Chances program, (b) ACT Genealogy Project and (c) ACT Traineeship Program in the current budget year and for each year across the forward estimates.
Ms Berry: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
a) Chances (name has changed to ConnXtions) - $220,000 per annum.
b) ACT Genealogy Project - no specific funding has been allocated for this project in the 2015-16 financial year. Any expenditure is accommodated by the Office of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs operating budget.
Similarly, there is no budgeted expenditure in the forward estimates.
c) The ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Traineeship Program is centrally coordinated through Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development Directorate. Each Directorate funds their own trainee to a total cost, per trainee, in the order of $70,000. The $70,000 is broken into $45,000 salary, plus 33% on site costs, and approximately $10,000 for Cert III or Diploma training, selection and recruitment costs, and other development and training through the 12 month program. This year the program has 12 trainees, and the number is anticipated to increase in future years.
