- Collie Industrial Transition Fund to drive local, long-term employment for Collie’s highly skilled, transitioning workforce
- Funding forms part of the $547.4 million Collie Just Transition Plan
Collie’s transition has taken another major step forward today, with a new $200 million fund opened to bring large-scale industrial projects to the town.
The $200 million Collie Industrial Transition Fund will target projects within the priority sectors of green manufacturing or minerals processing, clean energy, and energy-intensive industry.
The fund is aimed at large-scale industrial projects that create local jobs, with investment expected to help unlock industrial land and support project establishment.
The McGowan Government will be targeting projects that capitalise on the skills of the local workforce either through direct transfer of skills, or re-training and development.
The fund forms part of the McGowan Government’s Collie Just Transition Plan, an investment of more than $547.4 million to diversify Collie’s economy and help build a sustainable future ahead of the staged retirement of State-owned coal-fired power plants by 2030.
