Queensland Jobs Fund

A strong health response to COVID-19 enables us to transform the Queensland economy, which is critical to fostering productivity growth, increasing resilience and creating more jobs.

The $5.84 billion Queensland Jobs Fund brings together the Queensland Government’s current flagship industry development programs to boost the state’s industry footprint, create jobs and strengthen Queensland’s economy.

Through the Queensland Jobs Fund, companies with projects that have the potential to deliver ongoing economic benefits can seek government support to overcome barriers and realise opportunities.

The Queensland Jobs Fund aligns with the Queensland Government’s Queensland economic recovery plan which provides an overall vision for Queensland’s longer-term recovery.
