Resources Community Infrastructure Fund
The Resources Community Infrastructure Fund is a voluntary partnership between government and the resources industry and seeks to support infrastructure that is in addition to existing planned State and resource company funded community infrastructure.
The $100 million fund has been established by a voluntary partnership between coal and mineral companies through the Queensland Resources Council and the Queensland Government. The resources industry will be contributing $70 million and the State contributing $30 million.
The fund will be available to eligible communities to further develop their economic and social infrastructure to access services that meet resource community needs and maximise and enhance community wellbeing.
Applications for Round 1 have closed. Announcement of successful projects is expected from November 2021.
Information about Round 1 requirements can be found in the applicant guidelines (PDF, 555 KB).
Expected dates for Round 2 of the fund will be announced in due course.
The Queensland Government and Queensland Resources Council assembled the Advisory Committee to ensure the needs of resources communities across the state will be properly considered.
Committee members have a broad mix of skills and experience in mining logistics, regional, remote and indigenous communities, regional and remote health, and public administration.
