Services to communities

Link to Portfolio Outcome

DOTARS provides services designed to augment the social and economic capacity of communities in the Indian Ocean Territories of Christmas Island and Cocos (Keeling) Islands, as well as to facilitate and maintain their links with the rest of Australia and the wider world economy.

As part of its services to communities, DOTARS also provides a number of services at the State and local government level to the Jervis Bay Territory under agreements with public ACT and NSW service providers. The level of service provision is comparable to that of neighbouring NSW. DOTARS provides limited services in relation to the self-governing Territories of the ACT and Norfolk Island.

In addition, DOTARS administers transport and regional programs and grants for communities on behalf of its Ministers.
