The Commonwealth Treasury is inviting submissions from local councils for their views on what should be considered priorities in the 2020-21 Federal Budget.
ALGA will also be putting forward a submission based on the key priorities we advocated for during the recent federal election.
The highest priority issue will be an increase in the Financial Assistance Grants.
ALGA will also highlight that the local government sector is willing and able to deliver projects on the ground as part of any stimulus package that may be released.
Submissions close on 20 December 2019.
