The new $200 million Building our Regions Regional Infrastructure Fund (Building our Regions) is a targeted infrastructure program that delivers support for local government projects.
The state government's Royalties for the Regions 'blueprint' ensures that long-term royalty benefits will flow back to Queensland's resource regions. The framework will deliver improved social infrastructure for regional mining and resource communities.
The department is involved in building regional economies through such initiatives as the Royalites for the Regions program.
Planning is being synchronised across Queensland - the department supports a coordinated approach to meet future priorities, needs and community expectations.
