Local tourism businesses can now apply for up to $50,000 under the New Visitor Experience Program.

The new program is part of the NT Government’s $2 Million Immediate Tourism Resilience Plan to support the industry and help minimise the impacts of the Australian Bushfires and the national coronavirus travel restrictions.

Tourism businesses can apply for up to $50,000 in funding to deliver new tourism experiences for the Territory through a matched cash co-contribution.

The $500,000 program will support projects that create new tourism experiences, new or enhanced infrastructure upgrades and technology offerings.

Successful projects will demonstrate the advantages of new visitor experiences and how these experiences will increase and benefit tourists visiting the Northern Territory.

The new grant program is in addition to the four rounds of the Visitor Experience Enhancement Program (VEEP) as part of the $3 million Turbocharging investment over two years to assist the tourism industry to improve the on ground visitor experience.

Previously successful VEEP applicants are eligible to apply for the new program.

Applications open 2 March and close on 31 March for projects to be completed by 30 December 2020.

Applications are now open and can be submitted at
