New Remote Engagement Program Discussion Paper
Development of the new remote engagement program is underway. It is scheduled to replace the existing Community Development Program (CDP) in 2023, subject to Government endorsement. The new program will be developed in partnership with remote communities, service providers and all levels of government to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities have the best possible chance to share in Australia’s economy through improved employment participation.
