How to apply

Round five of the Tourism Growth Partnership (TGP) is now closed. A further funding round is expected to be held in 2017. Applications are still open for feasibility funding.

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.

Applications for funding are considered by an Independent Panel of Experts drawn from the tourism sector. The panel makes funding recommendations to the MBIE Chief Executive, who makes funding decisions.
