Jobs and Regional Growth Fund
The $130 million Jobs and Regional Growth Fund is part of the government’s broader $200M Jobs and Regional Growth Package, targeted at growing regional economies and jobs for Queenslanders.
The fund will help facilitate private sector projects which create employment and economic growth opportunities in regional areas outside South East Queensland facing significant economic and employment challenges.
Financial assistance ranging from $100,000 to over $10 million is available for proponents to apply directly. Applications will be assessed under an appropriate set of criteria and the type and level of assistance will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
Applications will be considered across a broad range of medium to large businesses, for both new projects and expansion of projects in Queensland that maximise benefits for regional employment and economic growth.
How to apply
Applications for financial assistance are invited directly from proponents. For more information on how to apply contact Department of State Development:
