Abstract:

On 7 December 2008, the Government released the guidelines that will govern the Rudd Government's $1 billion National Urban Water and Desalination Plan announced in this year's Budget. Under this Plan the Australian Government will fund large-scale infrastructure projects to help cities and towns meet future demand for water. The assistance will be provided as either grants to proponents that are not subject to income tax or refundable tax offsets for proponents that are subject to income tax. Financial assistance is up to 10 per cent of the eligible capital costs, capped at maximum of $100 million per project.
