The increase is partly offset by a Commonwealth payment of $7.3million for financial assistance grants expected in 2010-11 but received in 2009-10. The increase in 2011-12 is predominantly due to additional funding of $10million for the Shires Indigenous Employment Package. The increase in the Regional Development output in 2010-11 is primarily due to carryover of funding from 2009-10 into 2010-11 and one-off Commonwealth funding to support the Indigenous Business Development Program.
