2021-24 Works for Queensland Program

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

$200 million was allocated to 65 councils outside of South-East Queensland in 2016–17, $200 million in 2017–19, $200 million in 2019–21, and $200 million in 2021-24.

An additional $200 million has been committed for eligible councils for 2024-27. More information on eligibility and the funding guidelines will be published accordingly.

Program details

Each council will receive a funding allocation, which is to be spent on job-creating maintenance and minor infrastructure projects relating to assets owned or controlled by the council. Eligible councils are requested to place emphasis on providing jobs for young people (15 to 24 years) in the ‘not in employment, education or training’ (NEET) category.

Endorsed projects are to be delivered by 30 June 2024.
