FEDERAL FUNDING FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENT IN WA

Western Australian councils will receive $158.4 million in Federal Government assistance in 2001-02 for local roads and the provision of other local government services through grants approved today by the Federal Minister for Regional Services, Territories and Local Government, Senator Ian Macdonald.

"Nationally, the Federal Government will provide $1.375 billion* in financial assistance grants to local government, with Western Australian councils receiving 11.52 per cent of the national total," Senator Macdonald said.

"All of these grants are untied. This means that councils can allocate the funds they receive according to local priorities.

"The Federal Government is aware of the importance of these grants to councils, particularly for councils in rural and regional Australia.

"In Western Australia, around 76 per cent of these grants will go to rural and regional councils."

Senator Macdonald said the Federal Government had increased total funding to councils for 2001-02 by $46.9 million and had increased funding to councils by around $210 million since the Coalition came to office in 1996.

"The grants are paid under the Local Government (Financial Assistance) Act 1995, with the first quarterly payment expected on 15 August 2001," Senator Macdonald said.

The grants to individual councils were recommended by the Western Australian Local Government Grants Commission, a body established under Western Australian legislation for the purpose of determining the distribution of the grants to councils in Western Australia. (Details of the allocations are attached.)

In addition to these grants, councils in Western Australia will receive $45 million this year for local roads under the Federal Government's Roads to Recovery Programme. Details of the "Roads to Recovery" funding for councils are located at: http://www.dotrs.gov.au/land/road/r2r/r2r-funding-levels.htm .

*******

* $1.375 billion has been allocated, but the amounts councils will actually receive in 2001-02 will differ slightly from the allocations approved by the Minister. This is the result of a normal end-of-year adjustment in the grants. The actual amount available nationally to be paid to councils in 2001-02 will be

$1.382 billion.

The State Summary General Purpose and Road Grants for WA is attached.
