Request a review of a DPA or DWS classification –
The Distribution Working Group (DWG) provides independent advice in response to concerns raised about an area’s DPA classification.
The group assesses applications to review and re-assess an area’s non-DPA status.
Each application must have the support and engagement of the Rural Workforce Agency (RWA) in their state or territory.
Anyone can apply for an assessment. Applicants must work with their RWA to see if existing incentives and support meet their needs. DPA review applications must address the assessment criteria.
No new DPA classification update has been released yet.
