Emergency Response Fund Bill 2019, Emergency Response Fund (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2019; In Committee
In a similar vein to my previous questions, I'm interested in the process the government will go through in respect of the allocation of this funding. I'm sure that every state will probably stick up their hand and say they need more money than is available. I just want to make sure that there's been no predetermination in respect of which states will get what. Is it fair to assume that the funding will be allocated on a per capita basis or will it be done on some needs basis, based on submissions for grants by individual TAFEs or individual state governments?
