2020-21 COVID Works for Queensland program

As part of the Queensland Government’s Economic Recovery Strategy: Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs, on 19 May 2020 the Premier announced $200 million for a COVID Works for Queensland (2020–21 COVID W4Q) program, to be delivered during 2020–21.

The $200 million 2020–21 COVID W4Q program is available to all Queensland councils and is to be used to support the delivery of job creating new infrastructure, maintenance or minor works projects, including the bring-forward of planned/budgeted maintenance or capital works, that are focused on essential services, economic development and community wellbeing outcomes.

Funding Allocations

2020-21 COVID W4Q is a non-competitive, allocation-based funding program.

The approved funding allocations have been determined using a base allocation of $1 million plus an amount reflecting population and unemployment levels in the Local Government area.  Of the available program funding, $50 million has been allocated across the 12 South East Queensland Councils and $150 million across the non-SEQ Councils.
