Tasmanian Jobs and Growth

About the package

Delivered by a number of departments, the $106.0 million Tasmanian Jobs and Growth Package is an initiative which complements the Australian Government's Economic Growth Plan for Tasmania - a package of measures aimed at stimulating Tasmania's economy by supporting growth and employment.

Funding of $82.8 million from the 2013 to 2014 financial year to the 2016 to 2017 financial year, administered by the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development, is being provided for 30 projects which support the economic development of Tasmania. Additional projects of the Package are being delivered by other departments including the Department of Industry.

Projects and funding

For a list of projects and their funding commitment please see:

The Tasmanian Jobs and Growth Package is not a competitive grants programme. Only projects which have been identified by the Australian Government will be considered for funding under the Tasmanian Jobs and Growth Package.

All projects will be subject to an assessment against appraisal criteria to determine whether the project will contribute to the Outcomes of the Tasmanian Jobs and Growth Package.
