The Australian Government has announced the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grants program, a $10 million grants program which has been drawn from the Bushfire Recovery Fund. 

Austrade will administer the program, which has been developed in consultation with the National Bushfire Recovery Agency.

The Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grants program will have 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.

Applications for the program opened on 17 February 2020.

More information can be found on the Austrade website.
