Community Infrastructure Investment Partnership (CIIP)

The $8 million Community Infrastructure Investment Partnership (CIIP) program is an initiative under the Queensland Government’s Unite and Recover: Queensland’s Economic Recovery Plan to support communities impacted by COVID-19.

It will accelerate economic recovery through enhanced community infrastructure to deliver critical social services such as job-readiness programs.
