The Jobs and Economic Growth Fund has funding capacity of $200 million over four years to focus on supporting initiatives that create long-term sustainable jobs and economic growth.
The Fund is targeted to support initiatives and projects with priority given to the nine sectors identified as part of the Growth State partnership between the South Australian Government and industry.
Defence industry Tourism
Space industry Energy and mining
The Hi-Tech sector Health and medical industries
Food, wine and agribusiness Creative industries
These nine sectors have been identified as ones of comparative advantages, having strong potential to meet increasing interstate and global demand, and attract investors.
Funding will be primarily targeted to support industry or sector wide led initiatives which create long-term sustainable jobs and improve the overall productivity, capacity and competitiveness of at least one of the priority sectors.
