Application information

The Tourism Growth Partnership is currently on hold while funding priorities for the wider tourism portfolio are assessed. Further information will be made available in the coming months.

The TGP provides $8 million in contestable funding per year through co-investment in projects. This funding is divided evenly into two streams – the Productivity and Innovation Stream and the Regional Stream.

Under either stream, applicants can apply for co-investment of up to $25,000 toward a feasibility study.

Note that applications are not currently being accepted. The following information relates to round five of the Tourism Growth Partnership, which was held in 2016.
