VTIC welcomes opening of Tourism Demand Driver Infrastructure grants application process

15 /07/ 2015 Comments are Closed

The Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) has welcomed the opening of the application process for Tourism Demand Driver Infrastructure (TDDI) grants, for the benefit the program will bring to tourism product development in Victoria.

“We are delighted that Minister Eren has announced that applications for this significant new tourism funding program are now being accepted,” said VTIC Chief Executive Dianne Smith.

“This funding will encourage the development of new and improved major ‘hero’ tourism products and infrastructure projects that will stimulate visitation at tourism experiences throughout Victoria.”

The program aims to develop infrastructure projects that support the achievement of the Tourism 2020 objectives, grow visitation numbers and lead to a multiplication of benefits across the sector.

The TDDI funding program is a Federal Government program administered and managed by the state governments. Funding is available for tourism-related projects undertaken by the private sector, local and state governments, and tourism associations.

“VTIC looks forward to working with industry throughout Victoria to secure grants for projects that will enhance the visitor experience and create jobs,” said Ms Smith.

“In making submissions VTIC strongly encourages industry throughout Victoria to focus on projects that will enhance the visitor experience and create tourism jobs.”

Eligible projects will span environmental, built, transport and ‘enabling’ tourism infrastructure projects. Funding allocations will be for $250,000 to $750,000 per project, with at least equal funding from another source (excluding Federal Government funding sources) a requirement.

Applications close Wednesday 9 September 2015.
