Print this page Print this page Community Development Employment Projects Scheme Participant Supplement (CPS) - Description


The CPS is a supplementary fortnightly payment of $20.80 available to all eligible low-income CDEP participants in receipt of CDEP wages. It is a similar payment to APWS.


How CPS is paid

Allowees can elect to have the CPS paid each fortnight or as a lump sum payment every 12 weeks. Pensioners will receive the CPS each fortnight, as there is no provision that allows accumulation of pension instalments.


Act reference: SSAct section 1188B CDEP Scheme participants, section 1188D Entitlement to Supplement: people receiving pension-type payments on or after 20 March 1999, section 1188F Entitlement to Supplement on or after 20 March 2000: people not covered by section 1188D
