The 2019–21 Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program (LGGSP) is a competitive grant program available to all Queensland Local Governments.

With the early release of the 2019–21 LGGSP program guidelines in October 2018, Councils will have time to plan and submit funding applications from mid-January. Projects will be approved before Council budgets are finalised, thus providing additional financial certainty for eligible projects.

Program details

The 2019–21 LGGSP budget totals almost $58 million, delivered over two financial years.

The primary aim of this program is to provide funding assistance to support Local Governments to deliver priority infrastructure and essential services that meet the identified needs of their communities.

The objectives of the 2019–21 LGGSP are to support eligible projects that:

  • align with State, regional and local priorities
  • contribute to building safe, connected and liveable communities
  • contribute to economic growth and employment
  • maintain and extend the functional life of existing and future infrastructure assets through sustainable asset management
  • build resilience against future natural disasters
  • encourage collaboration and resource sharing between Local Governments.
