Building Projects Support Program - Round 2

The Tasmanian Government recognises the difficulty in getting some construction projects up and going in a COVID-19 environment.

The second $10 million round of this program will assist in getting some of these projects off the ground and provide a future pipeline for the Tasmanian construction sector and support jobs.

This second round will provide grants of up to 25 per cent (to a maximum of $1 million) of the total construction cost for projects with a minimum construction cost of $1 million. Projects must be able to commence within 12 months of receiving a grant. Applications outside these parameters may be eligible on a case-by-case basis and considered within the merit-based process.

The program is a competitive merit based program. Those projects that can best demonstrate economic benefit through the construction phase, enduring benefits to the Tasmanian economy such as through employment, deliver community and social benefit and demonstrate impact due to COVID-19 will be preferred.

Note: Round 2 of the Building Projects Support Program have closed.
