For the accommodation sector and large event facilities, payments will range from $10,000-$50,000, depending on sales revenue. For attraction, tour or event operators, the payment range is $7,500-$15,000.
Detailed information and comprehensive Q&A documents are available for the two funding streams:
- Accommodations and Major Event Facilities Funding

Application forms and relevant instructions are now available. Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Completed applications with all of the required attachments will be given priority.
