The Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) – with the support of its State and Territory Member Associations – will implement a coordinated advocacy campaign in the lead up to the next Federal Election.
This campaign will highlight opportunities for increased partnerships between federal and local governments in the areas of economic recovery, transport and community infrastructure, building resilience, circular economy and Intergovernmental relations, while also progressing Closing the Gap measures across the country.
By working with Australian councils – the level of government closest to its community – a Future Federal Government can put steps in place to guarantee no community is left behind as our country recovers from COVID-19.
ALGA has prepared a suite of resources to support its Member Associations and Australian local governments to participate in this campaign and build local awareness.
All State and Territory Associations, councils and other local government bodies are encouraged to get involved and highlight the important role councils can play in supporting Australia’s recovery, and how Australian communities will benefit from stronger federal/local government partnerships.
