Regional Tech Hub available to help
I encourage anyone experiencing connectivity issues to make use of assistance available through the Regional Tech Hub. The Australian government funds the hub, which provides free independent advice and support on telecommunications issues to Australians living and working in regional and remote locations, such as improving connectivity, resolving reception problems and how to use your home wi-fi to enable you to make calls and texts on your mobile phone.
Growing Regions Program
Round one of the Australian government’s new Growing Regions Program is now open for applications until next month. The program will provide grants of between $500,000 and $15 million to support capital works projects for community and economic infrastructure across regional, rural, and remote areas.
While I encourage eligible not-for- profit organisations and local governments to consider applying, please note that many applicants will be required to make a significant co-funding contribution towards projects. If this requirement is restrictive, please email me - it is important that the government is made aware of whether their programs are accessible and practical.
