The Australian Local Government Association and your state/territory local government association have designed a staged advocacy program that will ensure that our message is heard and understood and lead to action – an increase in funding from the Australian Government to Local Governments.
The first stage of the approach is the lead up to the federal election. We urged you to lend your voice to the sectors call to all federal political parties to provide fairer funding to councils.
We’re now in stage two, immediately post-election. A key part of this stage is to educate Parliamentarians, including your local member and senators, about the importance of this funding for unlocking the potential of local communities.
