Offer $5,000 for women to work

WOMEN looking for work will be able to apply for grants of up to $5,000 to fund a new work wardrobe, technology and training to help them return to the workforce.

Treasurer Matt Kean says women who are experiencing barriers re-entering the workforce, can apply for the grants to help cover the cost of common financial obstacles such as work clothes or an internet connection.
“Female-dominated industries and workers were hit hard by the pandemic and it highlighted the importance of women to the long-term health of our economy,” Mr Kean said.
“Now, more than ever, we need to support women to get into, and return to the workforce. This program helps equip women with the information, technology and financial support they need to get back to work.”
