Funding for the Hunter Defence Project from the state government ceased on 30 June 2015. Since that time HunterNet have being trying to secure funding from either the State or Commonwealth – but – to date – we have not been successful.

Given the importance of the Defence sector to the region – and to HunterNet members – the decision has been made to continue the HunterNet Defence Project whilst we continue to seek funding sources for a more intensive program.  February 2016.
