3. Funding in 2007 will be reduced to $460,000.
Table 2 below shows next year's funding allocations. The Canberra Strikers, Canberra Lakers, the Canberra Dolphins (women), Canberra Heat (men and women) and the Canberra Cockatoos (men and women) have each had their funding allocation from the program reduced from the previous year.
The ACT Brumbies, Canberra Raiders and Canberra Capitals maintained the level of program funding as compared to the previous year while the Canberra Gunners, the ACT Comets and the Canberra Knights received increased levels of program funding as compared to 2005/06.
These funding levels were developed through extensive consultation with all NLTP recipients. Several recipients formed a working group which was tasked with developing a tiered model to achieve equitable and transparent distribution of the NLTP resources. The use of this tiered model has received widespread support from NLTP stakeholders.
