CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION This is the second report of the Northern Territory Local Government Grants Commission. It deals with recommendations by the Commission in relation to the distribution to local governing bodies of funds provided under the Local Government (Financial Assistance) Act 1986. The report makes recommendations in respect of 56 local governing bodies, 17 of which have been incorporated under the provisions of the Local Government Act. The balance have not been formally incorporated under that Act but have been declared as local governing bodies for the purpose of the Local Government (Financial Assistance) Act. For 1987/88, it is estimated that these funds will be $6,009,327 and the amounts allocated for distribution to each local governing body are contained within the report. This report does not include details relating to the distribution between local governing bodies of additional untied general purpose assistance provided from the Northern Territory Government's sources. It is estimated that these funds for 1987/88 will total $11,016,714, including $10,029,214 for distribution to the Territory's smaller, predominantly Aboriginal communities. The assessment by the Northern Territory Local Government Grants Commission of grants to local governing bodies from Northern Territory sources is dealt with in a separate supplementary report.
