Good afternoon,

Support from councils for ALGA’s “endthefreeze” campaign has so far seen more than 100 emails sent to politicians across the country and across all parties in a bid to lift the freeze on the indexation of Financial Assistance Grants to councils.

Our campaign has certainly gained the attention of Ministers and federal members in Canberra, but more needs to be done to get the Government over the line and we’re seeking your council’s support for one more public push.

We will be amplifying our message with scheduled Twitter messages. If your council has a Twitter account, please join ALGA and other councils to ensure the Government hears our united message loud and clear: End the Freeze, Restore Indexation.

Joining takes less than 2 minutes.

Here are the joining instructions for your media/communications officer – Join Campaign.

The scheduled messages will be sent at 11am on 21 April (AEST), so it would be great if you could join now for this to have the desired effect.

Together, we can hold the Government to its promise to restore indexation to FAGs in the 2017-18 Federal Budget.
