  • two representatives of local government nominated by the Minister responsible for the Local Government Act 1993 from a list of four names submitted by the Local Government Association of Tasmania (LGAT).
The current members of the State Grants Commission are:
Mr D C HudsonChair and nominee of the Secretary of the Department of Treasury and Finance and approved by the Treasurer

The Commission seeks to operate using best practice governance strategies. It actively promotes increased stakeholder interest in its activities, methodology and assessment calculations, and works to ensure an environment of greater accountability and transparency. 

The Commission has recently adopted a more strategic view to its processes and work planning.  This work has resulted in the Commission proposing to replace its Triennium Work Plan processes and publications, and adopting a longer term more strategic perspective to its reviews.  This work has resulted in the Commission developing its own Strategic and Operational Planning Framework. The Commission’s priority of its work program and projects are now considered within this framework. Detailed information on the framework is available in Information Paper IP20-01 State Grants Commission Strategic and Operational Planning Framework.​
