ARC pause now lifted
Senator Penny Wong has released a statement about the pause on ARC grant funding. You can read it here.
Note the following remarks in that statement:
- "the temporary grants pause that was put in place to allow the Government
to examine every dollar of spending and ensure taxpayers are getting value for money is now lifted."
- "No grants already awarded will be affected by the decisions announced today
– savings have only been found in programs with uncommitted funds."
