Thanks, FP for the details.
The extra grants are included when calculating the $7200 lifetime limit.
So those with income less than $77,664 are not really getting extra grants, are they?
They are simply getting the $7,200 max grant sooner than others.
In other words, by getting the extra CESG grants, they'll reach the $7,200 limit faster than others, but not get anything more - correct?

That's correct - low income people can only get the same amount of grants as high income people (as Berubeland said).

It's still a bonus, albeit fairly limited. If I make a contribution of $1000 then I get a $200 grant. If a very low income person makes the same $1000 contribution then they can get a $300 grant which is more.

They are getting extra grants but in the situation where they reach the maximum grants then no, at that point they aren't getting extra grants. But they need to contribute a bit less to reach the $7200 max.
