Australia Local Government Association Financial Assistance Grant Sustainability Study

AEC was engaged by ALGA to complete a detailed research project into the financial sustainability of local government and the benefits provided by the Financial Assistance Grant Program. The engagement required assessment of the financial sustainability of the 535 local governments within Australia, based on a 5-year history of reported annual financial performance. 

AEC also completed economic impact assessment for each local government area of the provision of Financial Assistance Grants, based upon the current entitlements and alternative scenarios should the grants be increased and decreased. The outcomes of the research has informed the policy and advocacy for ALGA and the member local government associations in each jurisdiction.
