Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

The Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s New En­ter­prise In­cen­tive Scheme has been ex­panded to help more peo­ple turn their busi­ness ideas into re­al­ity.

Changes have been made to the el­i­gi­bil­ity cri­te­ria which have been broad­ened to in­clude peo­ple not cur­rently em­ployed or un­der­go­ing ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing.

An ad­di­tional 2300 NEIS places have been added, bring­ing the num­ber of places avail­able an­nu­ally to 8600.

Mem­ber for Du­rack Melissa Price said the scheme would sup­port those con­sid­er­ing self­em­ploy­ment and en­trepreneur­ship.

“I have spo­ken to many busi­nesses in the re­gion and it is clear that ini­tia­tives like the New En­ter­prise In­cen­tive Scheme pro­vide more op­por­tu­ni­ties for self-starters,” she said.

Ms Price said sup­port through the NEIS in­cluded con­nect­ing young peo­ple with ser­vices and pro­grams, work­shops to pro­vide a taste of self-em­ploy­ment and fa­cil­i­ta­tors to sup­port es­tab­lish­ment of new busi­ness.
