The Allan Labor Government is making sure Victorian tourism operators have the support they need to build and upgrade infrastructure projects, with new grants to ensure operators can thrive for generations to come.

Member for Macedon, Mary-Anne Thomas celebrated the announcement that applications are now open for the new round of the Regional Tourism Investment Fund.

The Fund provides grants of up to $5 million for small and large-scale projects and accommodation improvement projects – creating more jobs and a strong pipeline of demand-driven tourism infrastructure projects across the state.

Grants between $100,000 and $5 million are open to tourism businesses, not-for-profit and Traditional Owner organisations.

The grants will be delivered in three streams – between $100,000 and $1 million for small-scale projects, grants between $1 million and $5 million for large scale projects, and grants between $500,000 and $2 million for accommodation improvement projects.

The Fund is guided by the five priorities identified in the Experience Victoria 2033 strategic plan – First People’s led experiences, wellness, arts and culture, food and drink, and nature.

Applications for the Regional Tourism Investment Fund are open from Thursday, 16 May 2024 until Friday, 19 July 2024.
