APY lands get income management

The Australian Government will introduce income management in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in the Top End of South Australia to help families ensure their welfare payments are spent in the best interests of children, according to a media release from Jenny Macklin, Federal Minister for Indigenous Affairs.

A similar system operates in the Northern Territory under the Federal Intervention.
"Income management ensures that money is available for life essentials, and provides a tool to stabilise people’s circumstances and ease immediate financial stress," says the release.
"Consultations in May this year with APY Lands communities clearly showed strong support for income management on the Lands."
