Queensland opens Council infrastructure funding grants
January 21, 2019
The Queensland Government has announced that the state’s 77 councils are set to share in $58 million in funding for local government grants and subsidies.
State Local Government Minister Stirling Hinchliffe opened the grant process earlier this month, with the 2019-21 round of the Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program (LGGSP) now receiving applications.
“This fantastic initiative helps local governments deliver important infrastructure in communities throughout Queensland,” Mr Hinchliffe said.
“There’s $58 million up for grabs from 2019-21 and I want to encourage all councils to get in their bids for a share of funding.
“The funding can be used for sewerage and water projects, security and community safety, and economic development and tourism.
The application period closes on Friday 8 February 2019.
All 77 Queensland councils are eligible to apply for 2019-21 LGGSP funding, with projects expected to be completed by the end of June 2021.
