The Federal Government
The Federal or Commonwealth Government is responsible for the conduct of national affairs. Its areas of responsibility are stated in the Australian Constitution and include defence and foreign affairs; trade, commerce and currency; immigration; postal services, telecommunications and broadcasting; air travel; most social services and pensions. The Federal Government is also involved, mainly through funding, in many things largely carried out by the States, such as health, education, environmental issues, industrial relations, etc.
State or Territory Government
Under the Australian Constitution, the States are responsible for everything not listed as a Federal responsibility. However, sometimes both levels are involved. Major State responsibilities include schools, hospitals, conservation and environment, roads, railways and public transport, public works, agriculture and fishing, industrial relations, community services, sport and recreation, consumer affairs, police, prisons and emergency services. Each state has its own constitution setting out its system of government.

They are cutting back on their spending and even on necessities, but this doesn’t have to be. What many Americans don’t know is that there are billions of dollars at their fingertips that are being distributed in the form of government and private sector grants and all they need do is apply.
This is free money that does not need to be repaid and that many companies and organizations continue to fund because of the great tax breaks, among other benefits. In fact foundations are required by law to give away 5% of their total assets each year to maintain their tax-exempt status.
Government grants are free cash donations that are funded by tax dollars. There are over 1500 Federal grants programs managed by 57 different Federal agencies and
