​We work with local government to help the sector secure its financial future.

Our work involves advocating for the sector’s economic and financial needs and arguing for greater recognition of local government's role in a range of government funding programs.

We also work with our members to improve their financial autonomy.

As well as participating in the state government's budget planning process, we also research new and evolving financial issues.

Financial Assistance Grants and Rate Capping Taskforce (FRCT)

The MAV established a Financial Assistance Grants and Rate Capping Taskforce in response to the Federal Government's decisions on supporting financial grants and the State Government's policy on rate capping. See the FRCT campaign page for more details.
