YOUNG jobseekers will have more help to find and keep a job, and move from welfare to work.
Federal member for Flynn Ken O'Dowd said the government was targeting financial assistance to help more young Australians into work.
"Sometimes people need to move to where the work is. That's why we've introduced the Relocation Assistance to Take Up a Job Program," he said.
"This initiative will not only help young people get a job, but will also assist regional areas get the workers they need."
From July 1, the Job Commitment Bonus rewards young jobseekers aged 18-30 who move off income support and stay in work.
Eligible young jobseekers who get a job and stay off income support for 12 months can receive a bonus payment of $2500.
These same jobseekers can receive an additional bonus if they stay in work and off income support for a further 12 months, that is, 24 months in total.
Eligible jobseekers can receive up to $3000 to help meet the costs of moving from a regional area to a capital city to take up a job.
Jobseekers moving to a regional area can receive up to $6000. An extra $3000 is available to jobseekers with dependent children to help with additional moving costs.
