A new round of the Tourism Demand Driver Infrastructure (TDDI) program has been announced that provides funding on a matched dollar-for-dollar basis for the development of tourism infrastructure. In particular, the program supports projects that contribute to achieving the Commonwealth’s Tourism 2020 objectives and the Victorian Visitor Economy Strategy.
TDDI funding is available to tourism related businesses or investors, local and state government or tourism associations. Funding will generally be limited to $250,000 to $750,000 per project, with at least equal funding from another source (excluding other Commonwealth funding sources). In-kind support is not considered matching funding.
Applicants are encouraged to seek advice from TNE regarding how their project align with local tourism priorities, and are also recommended to speak with a Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources representative about their project before submitting an application.
The TDDI Program involves a competitive process, with applications closing at 5pm on 11 November 2016. Applications are to be submitted online via Business Victoria.
