Collie’s investment potential highlighted

The exciting economic opportunities being unlocked for business and industry in Collie are highlighted in a new investment prospectus.

Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan launched the Collie Futures investment prospectus to business and industry representatives at the WA Works Conference, hosted by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Western Australia.

The investment prospectus highlights Collie’s considerable potential and identifies a range of opportunities the private sector can tap into.

“The Collie Futures investment prospectus will raise awareness of the real benefits for businesses to consider Collie as a place of choice to invest,” said Minister McTiernan. “It is another signal by the McGowan Government of our focus on driving economic growth and job opportunities for local people.”

The fund is being delivered through two key programs. Organisations can apply to the Collie Futures Industry Development Fund for up to $2 million in matched funding per industry-led project. There is also up to $100,000 available per project through the $2 million Collie Futures Small Grants Program.

This will be followed by a further $42 million Industry Attraction and Development Fund to become available in coming months.
