What is the $1,500 job keeper allowance? Under the JobKeeper payment scheme, businesses impacted by COVID-19 are able to access a subsidy from the government to continue paying their employees. Cafs is eligible for Jobkeeper and has submitted a claim. Jobkeeper provides Cafs with the unique opportunity to lessen the negative financial impact of COVID-19. Any funding received through Jobkeeper will enable us to strengthen our organisation, in turn providing our clients with an improved level of support.
