Brisbane and Ballarat to get Digital Hubs funding

Hubs help locals improve their online skills and understand the benefits of the NBN

Companies situated in local government areas of Brisbane and Ballarat are eligible to apply for the Digital Hubs program, which helps locals take advantage of the National Broadband Network (NBN).

The hubs are located in some of the first areas where the NBN is rolling out and provide training and assistance to help locals improve their online skills, and understand the benefits and opportunities of the NBN.

Brisbane and Ballarat join 37 other communities that have already received Digital Hubs funding.

To date, the hubs have supplied 3206 training sessions to more than 6000 participants.

“If Australia is going to achieve the Gillard Government’s goal of being a world-leading digital economy by 2020, all of us need to keep developing our online skills and be aware of the opportunities that the NBN brings,” Communications minister, Senator Stephen Conroy, said in a statement.

Funding for the Digital Hubs program is accessible through a competitive grant application process and applicants will be assessed according to the degree to which they meet the eligibility and selection criteria set down in the program guidelines.

The closing date for applications is Friday January 25.
