1. The Inner South Canberra Community Council was formed in December 2010, so the funding it received in 2010-11 was pro-rated.

2. The Woden Valley Community Council did not receive the full grant amount in 2013-14 due to unspent funds from the previous financial year's grant.

2. The Government provides annual funding to Community Councils through a deed of agreement to:

a. support participation by the community in council activities;

b. communicate the views of the community to the ACT Government; and

c. hold publicly advertised community meetings which are open to the public.

3. Management of the Community Councils funding agreements is undertaken by Communications, Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development Directorate.

This combined policy has the effect of standardising arrangements and insurance lowering premiums for each of the councils.
