*Grants from the Australian Government are almost evenly split between general and specific purpose payments. General purpose payments include GST revenue grants, are ‘untied’ and used for both recurrent and capital purposes. Specific purpose payments are ‘tied’ and used to fund specific projects or programs in order to support service delivery and facilitate reforms.
