298 Revenue of initiatives under this agreement, with Commonwealth NP payments of $115.8 million anticipated to be received in 201112. Commonwealth and Territory ownpurpose funding also contributes to the achievement of this NPAs outcomes. National Partnership Agreement on Remote Service Delivery The NPA on Remote Service Delivery has been established to implement a new coordination model for remote service delivery to enhance the access of Indigenous Australians living in remote communities to high quality government services and improve governance, economic and social participation in these communities. In the Territory, the NPA is being implemented in 15 sites of the Territory Growth Towns under the Territory Governments Working Future policy, with DHLGRS coordinating Territory service delivery agency involvement in local implementation planning. Funding under this agreement is provided as Commonwealth and Territory ownpurpose funding as such it is not clear at this stage how much funding will be provided to the Territory under this NPA. National Partnership Agreement on the Nation Building and Jobs Plan The NPA on the Nation Building and Jobs Plan was agreed in February 2009 as a mechanism to implement a range of infrastructure projects as economic stimulus measures in response to the global financial crisis. It included provision of new facilitates and refurbishments in schools (for example, libraries, multipurpose halls, secondary school science laboratories and language centres) through the Building the Education Revolution(BER) initiative, construction and refurbishment of social housing, additional regional road maintenance, road black spot and railway boom gate projects. While the Territory will receive approximately $132.8 million in Commonwealth funding under this NPA in 201011, with around half of this going to Territory Government primary schools, it is estimated that only $2.3 million will be received in 201112. This reflects the bringing forward of stimulus revenues to the early years of the NPA (the agreement concludes in December2012).
