Regional Growth - Environment and Tourism Fund
The Regional Growth – Environment and Tourism Fund (RGETF), source from Restart NSW, aims to increase tourist visitation by investing in regional environment and tourism infrastructure, particularly focusing on assets that will grow and further diversify NSW regional economies.
The NSW Government recognises that investment is needed in the environment and tourism infrastructure that generates this wealth. The RGETF demonstrates the NSW Government’s commitment to supporting these activities.
The NSW Government has committed $300 million to RGETF, with up to $100 million is available in the first round of funding. The NSW Government is inviting Expressions of Interest (EOI) for funding under the RGETF. EOIs are invited from government, local councils, Aboriginal Land Councils and other Aboriginal groups, community groups, private operators and non-government organisations.
Applications to secure RGETF funding should clearly identify eligible environment and tourism infrastructure projects in regional LGAs that have the potential to create new jobs and regional growth from increased tourist visitation. Eligible applicants should use the form provided on the website at www.industry.nsw.gov.au/rgetf
