Media Release Department of Community Development:
Community Development Minister Peter Batchelor said the Public Internet Access Program (PIAP) gave grants of up to $7500 to community organisations and local government authorities to provide between 10 and 20 hours of free internet access to the public every week for the next two years.
“The Brumby Government is taking action to ensure all Victorians have access to technology and these grants will help 140 organisations across the state, including in Kerang, Moe, Shepparton and Portarlington, provide access to the internet for disadvantaged Victorians,” Mr Batchelor said.
“Information and communication technologies are powerful tools in strengthening communities, redressing disadvantage and giving everyone a fair go.
“People use the internet for homework, work or pleasure, banking and paying bills, looking for jobs and study opportunities, and keeping up with world events.
“And many people primarily use the internet to stay in touch with friends and family, and to connect with other people.
“By providing these grants we are helping more people to get online and develop their internet knowledge and skills. In essence, these grants will help develop strong communities – real as well as virtual.”
“Connecting Communities: The Second Wave focuses on three key areas – access, content and skills – and this program addresses both access and skills,” Mr Batchelor said.
“The PIAP grants help ensure no Victorian experiences disadvantage because of who they are or where they live, by targeting recently arrived migrants, senior Victorians, unemployed Victorians and those outside the education system and workforce and people with a disability.”
