Resources Community Infrastructure Fund

The Resources Community Infrastructure Fund (RCIF) 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 (QRC) 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.
