The Catalyst Infrastructure Program (CIP) is a Queensland Government initiative to invest in urban infrastructure that unlocks development and creates construction and long-term employment.

Funding of CIP infrastructure will be through co-investment by Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) on behalf of the government, and another party or parties.

The government will be seeking repayment of its investment over time. Co-investors may include local governments, utility providers and developers.
