Why not move to the bush?
Should the scheme to encourage Sydneysiders to make a tree or sea change be scrapped. Two Murrays question why fewer than 700 grants have given and what's stopping people moving to the bush.
The relocation grants were originally offered to those who sold their metropolitan home - which included Sydney, the Central Coast, Newcastle, Wollongong and the Blue Mountains - and bought an existing home in the country for up to $600,000.
However, in December last year the government was forced to extend the program because of lack of interest, and the grants were also offered to those who wanted to build their own homes.
Of the people who took up the grant, 210 moved not from Sydney, but from Newcastle, the Illawarra, Central Coast and Blue Mountains, the information obtained by the opposition showed.
The government had hoped 10,000 people would take up the grants over the four-year life of the program.

Apart from this, mothers ought to stick to various other conditions also. These include a high school level or maybe any comparable accreditation. The other vital prerequisites are a applicable ss #, a proof regarding United States citizenship, plus a sound reason. Housing grants for unmarried mothers are also available for single moms, and so they appear in various sorts. The essential necessity of your children is usually a house, and being a single mother you can reduce your burden of everyday expenditures via registering for a housing grant.Sara N.

Only thing that is stopping me is work. There needs to be a central place that you can look at what work is out there and what skills you need to do the jobs available.Angela Wednesday 6 June, 2012 - 11:03 PM
