  • McGowan Government delivering on its commitment to stimulate the diversification of the Collie economy and grow local jobs
  • Collie Futures Industry Development Fund to support industry-led projects that will grow and diversify the economy
  • Up to $2 Million available per project to support new and existing industries

McGowan Government has announced a new program that will provide grants of up to $2 Million towards industry-led projects capable of growing and diversifying the Collie economy.

“This is an exciting opportunity to drive economic advancement and create jobs in Collie we’re providing financial support to companies looking to establish or expand operations to help smooth the transition for Collie.” Minister for Regional Development Alannah MacTiernan said.

 

“McGowan Government is working to identify new industry, employment, upskilling and training opportunities through the creation of an economic development plan for Collie and Bunbury.”

Applications are now open for the Collie Futures Industry Development Fund, designed to develop new industries and expand existing industries in the Collie region to create more job opportunities for local people.

Initiatives from a wide range of sectors that can demonstrate the capacity to make a significant and sustainable impact on the local economy, will be eligible for consideration under the program.

Successful applicants will need to match the State Government’s funding contribution.

“If you are a business looking to establish a new base or expand operations, Collie is well worth considering.” Collie-Preston MLA Mick Murray said.

“I encourage companies and organisations to take up the opportunity to tap into the millions of dollars in funding on offer through this program and to utilise Collie’s strengths to support your endeavours.”

Collie Futures Industry Development Fund is the second funding program delivered through the McGowan Government’s $20 Million Collie Futures Fund. The Collie Futures Small Grants Program was launched last year, with successful applicants already receiving support to kickstart economy-boosting, job-creating initiatives through the program.
