The Queensland Government is now in caretaker mode until after the state election. Minimal updates will be made to this site until after the election results are declared.

The 2017–19 Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program (LGGSP) aims to support local governments to meet the needs of their community by providing funding for the delivery of priority capital infrastructure projects.

Program details

The 2017–19 LGGSP budget totals $60 million, delivered over two financial years.

The aim of this program is to provide funding assistance to support local governments to deliver key infrastructure projects that:

  • meet community needs, contributing to sustainable and liveable communities
  • align with state, regional and local priorities
  • support economic growth, innovation and community development, increasing job creation for local communities
  • contribute to building safe, caring and connected communities, enhancing access to infrastructure and services
  • support Queensland communities to be more resilient to natural disasters and reduce future expenditure on asset restoration.

As at 18 October 2017, a total of 90 projects for 71 Councils have been approved (one project granted preliminary approval) under the 2017-19 LGGSP. More than 1100 FTE jobs (construction/implementation and post completion) have been identified by councils, as being generated by the 2017-19 LGGSP.
