$20,000 Back to Work PROGRAM Extended!

Exciting news! The Queensland State Government has extended the Back to Work Program, meaning that eligible Queensland employers could receive up to $20,000 under this scheme.

The Queensland Government has just announced that the Back to Work program has been extended through to 30 June 2021 or until the available funding of $70 million has been fully allocated.

Traditionally, Youth Boost has only been available to the employers of apprentices and trainees, however now this funding is open to employers who put any eligible young person between the ages of 15 – 24 years into employment that meets the funding criteria.

The Back to Work grant is subject to location and the availability of funds, please see the links below to the Queensland State Government’s website to find out more on the locations that are eligible.

The financial incentives under the Back to Work program can be split into three different payments:
