Applications now open for Tourism Infrastructure Fund

Published: 01 March 2022

The Tourism Infrastructure Fund is now open for applications from councils to address infrastructure needs related to tourism.

Funding will continue to prioritise projects that demonstrate the need for additional visitor-related public infrastructure. 

As 2022 is the first year of Aotearoa’s new Matariki public holiday, consideration will be given to tourism infrastructure projects that support the delivery of Matariki events.

Since 2017 the TIF has funded more than 200 projects totalling $76.3 million at popular visitor destinations around the country. These projects have helped regions manage pressures brought by an increase in tourism, and will help when our border re-opens.

Applications are open to all councils from today, and close on 28 March.

For more information, including eligibility and co-funding criteria, visit the Tourism Infrastructure Fund page.
