The Property Council has welcomed the Deputy Premier’s pre-budget commitment of $200 million across two infrastructure funds to unlock residential land supply.  

Catalyst Infrastructure Fund 

The Catalyst Infrastructure Fund (CIF) will receive $150 million in equity funding for the major infrastructure needed to continue the delivery of new communities. 

The CIF will be supplemented by contributions from property developers who will be required to make co-investments of at least 20 percent towards the cost of major infrastructure. 

Growth Acceleration Fund 

In addition, the Deputy Premier also announced a new $50 million Growth Acceleration Fund to support the delivery of priority trunk infrastructure in communities.

$15 million from this Growth Acceleration Fund has already been allocated to help deliver water and sewer infrastructure in Caboolture West.
