Budget 1996-97

Historical Budget documents are available for reference purposes. Please note that due to the age of these documents they may not meet current web publishing requirements and may not be compatible with some software.

These historical documents are presented as originally created. This may include an acronym for the Financial Assistance Grant program that is offensive and inappropriate, and which we no longer use. The department apologises for the use of this term and the harm. Today, the program is referred to as the ‘FA Grant’ or the ‘Financial Assistance Grant’.
