The State Government has announced support packages for industry and is working closely with Alinta, the Australian Government and local councils to ensure an appropriate response.
The investment announced by the State Government includes:
- $258,000 for Regional Job Creation Grants in Port Augusta
- $258,000 for Regional Job Creation Grants in Whyalla
The Port Augusta and Whyalla job creation packages will be based on the State Government’s successful Business Transformation Voucher program, with the Regional Job Creation Grants enabling businesses to apply for funding on a dollar-for-dollar basis to help them expand their business and create jobs.
