The 2016–17 Works for Queensland (W4Q) program supports regional councils to undertake job-creating maintenance and minor infrastructure projects
More than 700 projects have been approved and councils estimate the works will support, sustain or create almost 6,000 jobs in regional towns and cities battling high unemployment.
This initiative is funded under the State Infrastructure Fund.
The 2016–17 budget for the W4Q program is $200 million. Each eligible local government will receive a base allocation of $1 million, with an additional notional allocation based on unemployment data.
The allocation is to be spent on job-creating maintenance and minor infrastructure projects relating to assets owned or controlled by local governments.
