The application round for the Youth Development and Support Program 2013-14 closed on 23 August 2013. Applications will not be accepted after the closing date.
While the department planned to announce the outcomes of the Youth Development and Support Program (YDSP) 2013-14 funding round in October 2013, there will be a delay in making this announcement. The Australian Government is currently assessing all grant spending for consistency with Government priorities and commitments.
There is a requirement for additional approval by the Minister for Finance to ensure that assessment can take place, before any relevant grant spending can proceed. It is normal practice when a new government is elected to assess current spending and ensure there is no waste, no duplication and that spending aligns with its policy priorities and commitments. Updates about the funding round will be published on www.youth.gov.au
