Queensland Jobs Fund

The 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.

What programs make up the Queensland Jobs Fund?

As part of the fund, the Industry Partnership Program is investing $350 million over four years to continue to grow and create jobs across a number of priority industry sectors such as hydrogen, biofutures, biomedical, resource recovery and recycling, batteries, critical minerals processing, and renewable energy manufacturing.

Following the 2023-24 State Budget, the Queensland Government is investing an additional $53.5 million into the Program to provide tailored assistance packages to eligible industry participants. This additional funding will assist new projects that will boost the state’s industry footprint, fast track the development of emerging industries that support a low-emission future, target supply chain gaps, create jobs and strengthen Queensland’s economy.

Funding of up to $12 million has also been committed to support an upgrade to the existing facilities at the Cairns Marine Precinct shipyards. This funding will help to ensure that the Cairns Marine Precinct will continue to deliver as the premier marine maintenance and sustainment hub in Northern Australia for commercial, Defence and recreational industries across Australia and internationally.

  • Backing Queensland Business Investment Fund
