Cobbora Transition Fund

The $20 million Cobbora Transition Fund creates infrastructure that drives economic growth and productivity in the region.

The fund recognises the impact that land acquisition and other activities associated with the Cobbora Coal Project have had on local communities.

Funding was provided in two ways - $16 million through an expression of interest process, and $1 million allocated directly to each of the four councils in the region.

The projects which were allocated funding under the Cobbora Transition Fund range from health care, roads and transport initiatives, through to tourism, events and recreation, and are spread across the region.

What’s the latest?

The fund has been fully allocated. Construction continues.
