In 2020, the Queensland Government committed to conducting a review of funding arrangements for Indigenous councils including the State Government Financial Aid (SGFA), Revenue Replacement Program (RRP) and Indigenous Economic Development Grant (IEDG).
The 2022-24 Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program (LGGSP) is a competitive, application-based grant program available to all Queensland councils.
W4Q is a non-competitive, allocation-based funding program that supports regional councils to undertake job-creating maintenance and minor infrastructure projects. The 2021–24 W4Q budget totals $200 million, to be delivered over three financial years.
The SEQCSP is designed to fast-track SEQ councils’ investment in new infrastructure and community assets that create jobs and deliver economic stimulus to local communities.
The grant program provides $100 million, delivered through a mix of base allocation funding of $74 million and $26 million distributed on a competitive application basis.
The SSGP is an allocation-based funding program assisting recognised Show Societies in Queensland to conduct annual agricultural shows.
The ICCIP is a $120 million funding program that will deliver critical water, wastewater, and solid waste infrastructure to Queensland’s Indigenous councils.
Under the FFRMP, the Department of Environment and Science is delivering $2 million in grant funding over four years to assist Queensland local governments to mitigate the impacts of flying-fox roosts on their communities and better support residents and businesses to co-exist with flying-foxes.
Under the 2022-24 Local Government Levy Ready Grant Program Round 3, the Department of Environment and Science is delivering a $5 million targeted competitive grant program for local government infrastructure projects at eligible landfill sites located within the levy zone.
