The 2017–19 Works for Queensland (W4Q) program supports regional councils to undertake job-creating maintenance and minor infrastructure projects.

In 2016–17, more than 700 projects were approved and councils estimated the works would support, sustain or create almost 6,000 jobs in regional towns and cities battling high unemployment.

Program details

The 2017–19 W4Q program budget totals $200 million, delivered over two years. 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.
