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.
