Stronger Futures employment targets to deliver more local jobs in the Northern Territory
There will be more local jobs for Aboriginal people in remote communities across the Northern Territory with employment targets set for all Australian Government funded services delivered as part of Stronger Futures in the Northern Territory.
The Minister for Indigenous Affairs Jenny Macklin announced the Australian Government’s commitment to the employment targets during a visit to Wurli Wurlinjang Aboriginal Health Service in Katherine.
“Delivering more local jobs and better employment outcomes for Aboriginal people is a priority for the Australian Government,” Ms Macklin said.
The $3.4 billion Stronger Futures commitment is the largest, long-term commitment by government to improve the lives of Aboriginal people living in the Northern Territory.Tweet
