Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade)

Closing: 20th Mar 2020 5:00 pm (ACT Local Time)

The Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery (RTBR) grants program is a $10 million program which has been drawn from the Bushfire Recovery Fund. The program is part of the Government’s $76 million tourism recovery package to protect jobs, small businesses and local economies by helping get tourists travelling into bushfire affected regions. 

The program has two funding streams which, together, will support events, concerts, festivals and visitor attractions in fire affected regions to assist with recovery efforts and encourage international and domestic visitors to come back to the regions.

Stream 1 will support smaller-scale events (including the promotion of these events). Applicants may apply for more than one grant in this stream, up to a total value of $30,000 per applicant. Applications will be assessed as they are received. Recognising potential applicants may seek to hold events as early as mid-March or April 2020, applications in excess of $30,000 will be considered for Stream 1 in exceptional circumstances.

Stream 2 will support larger events (including the promotion of those events), and/or other visitor attractions such as art installations and tourist walks. Applicants are advised to make their proposals scalable as they may not receive the full amount they are seeking. Stream 2 applications will be assessed when the round closes. 

Eligibility

Stream 2 applicants are local government authorities and regional tourism organisations in local government areas activated by state or territory governments for DFRA assistance during the 2019-20 fire season and which are declared Category D. The eligible entities for this stream are listed in Annexure B in the program guideline
