Program details

The 2018–19 Local Government Levy Ready Grant Program (LGLRGP) has been established as a one-off grant for necessary infrastructure upgrades of waste disposal facilities.

The Department of Local Government, Racing and Multicultural Affairs (DLGRMA) is administering the 2018-19 LGLRGP on behalf of the Department of Environment and Science (DES), which has primary responsibility for implementing the levy.
