The CDEP Scheme and Racial
The CDEP scheme allows
Indigenous people to pool their entitlement to social security benefits
and work on projects within their community. Participation in such schemes
is voluntary and participants must work to receive payment. The report
addresses the different entitlements of CDEP participants and social security
recipients and the overall status of the scheme in relation to the
Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth).
