About assistance to local government authorities
The Australian Government will consult with state and territory governments to nominate appropriate regions to participate in the Sustainable Regional Development program. These regions will be involved in regional sustainability planning, and may include one or more local government areas. Additional support may be available through a non-competitive grant to one local government authority in each selected region. The funds are to support activities to further increase the capacity and engagement of the community in developing and implementing the plan.
