The Government of Western Australia is opening doors for industry by offering up to $2 million in matched funding in support of industry-led projects setting up or expanding in the South West town of Collie in Western Australia. An energy hub, Collie is known for its abundant coal resources, power generation, and big industry operations including an alumina refinery. There is available land at the Shotts industrial park and light industrial area in Collie, as well as nearby at Kemerton.
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 and diversify the local economy.
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.
The Fund also provides funding to develop business cases and undertake feasibility, scoping or planning studies.
Successful applicants will need to match the State Government’s funding contribution.
