Royalties for the Regions seeks to supercharge regions

MORE than $210 million will be made available for councils across the state under the latest round of funding under the Royalties for the Regions program in a bid to supercharge regional economies.

Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney said today the program would take on a slightly different objective in the next round of funding.

"Now is the time to refocus the program, to broaden the scope to ensure these funds help to supercharge regional economies and provide jobs and long-term benefits for regional Queenslanders," he said.

"This essentially means that we will consider funding more projects under round four, projects that deliver jobs and business investment in regional Queensland."

Mr Seeney said all councils and State Government agencies can apply for funding for projects that support economic growth in their region and achieve the outcomes of the government's RegionsQ initiative.

"I encourage councils and community groups to work together and with state government agencies in their area to identify infrastructure projects that will supercharge local economies and provide long-term benefits for their region," he said.
