The $600 million Works for Queensland (W4Q) program supports regional Councils to undertake job-creating maintenance and minor infrastructure projects.

An additional $200 million has been approved to extend the W4Q program until 2020–21.

Payment of $100 million of this additional funding has been accelerated and will be provided to eligible local governments by June 2019. The second $100 million will be released post-June 2019 to maintain the community benefit and keep regional economies strong.

Program details

The total 2019–21 W4Q program budget is $200 million with projects to be delivered by June 2021. Each eligible council will receive a base allocation of $1 million, with an additional notional allocation based on unemployment data.

The allocation is to be spent on job-creating maintenance and minor infrastructure projects relating to assets owned or controlled by local governments. Eligible councils should place emphasis on providing jobs for young people (15 to 24 years) in the ‘not in employment, education or training’ (NEET) category.
