$100M for councils to share

South-east Queensland councils are set to share in $100 million for projects that will deliver critical housing and local infrastructure, jobs and essential services across the fast-growing region.

The funding will be available to the 12 SEQ councils through the second $100 million round of the South East Queensland Community Stimulus Program (SEQCSP).

The program aims to fast-track investment in critical infrastructure and community assets, such as water supply and maintenance, roads and drainage, disaster resilience projects, community buildings and works to prepare sites for future housing development.

Under the new round, some councils will be able to put part of their allocated funding towards planning for key infrastructure, and training for council staff.

The 2024-27 round will have a strong focus on projects that deliver critical infrastructure needs and support long-term sustainability.

All councils can allocate up to 20 per cent of their SEQCSP allocation towards planning projects and up to five per cent towards capability development projects.
