The State Government Financial Aid (SGFA) program is provided to Indigenous councils as a contribution towards the cost of delivering local government services.
These recurrent grants are provided as a financial contribution (in lieu of rates) to meet the costs incurred by Indigenous councils in the provision of local government services including:
The funding does not cover costs that are not directly associated with the program, for example services or support provided by other funding bodies.
Funding provided to local governments by the department is a 'taxable supply' of services within the meaning of the GST Act. As a result, recipients must issue a valid tax invoice for the supply of the service. The 'service' is the delivery of the approved project(s).
