Taxi Reform Hardship Fund
The Victorian Government established the $4 million Taxi Reform Hardship Fund (the "Fund") to assist perpetual taxi licence owners who may have been experiencing severe financial distress as a result of reforms following the 2012 Taxi Industry Inquiry.
The Fund was overseen by Chair, Janet Dore, and a team of appointed auditors to ensure all applications were considered fairly and independently.
Applications to the Fund opened on Thursday 19 November 2015 and closed on Friday 12 February 2016.
KPMG undertook an audit and assessment of each application received against a set of guidelines supporting the criteria outlined above.
This process informed Ms Dore's final recommendations to the Minister for Public Transport.
All applicants have now been advised of the outcome of their application. These results are final and there will not be an appeal process.
