Strategic Industry Partnership Program
The Agricultural Workforce Resilience Package aims to attract and retain an effective seasonal workforce, with a particular focus on keeping our planting, production and harvesting seasons on track in light of COVID-19.
The package includes a two-year extension of the Strategic Industry Partnership Program (SIPP) and up to $1 million to invest in collaborative projects with agricultural peak industry bodies.
Priorities for this two-year extension include:
- Business resilience, recovery and growth
- Promotion of jobs and careers in Tasmanian agriculture
- Skills, training, and workforce development meeting identified industry needs
- An industry-sponsored boost to regional transport
Further information about the Strategic Industry Partnership Program can be found in the guidelines:
Applications for the first round of SIPP closed on 16 September and are currently being assessed.
