Boosting Accessible Tourism Experiences Grant
Funding to support the development and enhancement of smaller scale infrastructure or products to make it more accessible.
The $1 million Boosting Accessible Tourism Experiences Grant provides funding support for sole traders and small tourism and events businesses to develop and/or enhance accessibility.
It is part of the Queensland Government’s $12 million investment to support delivery of a package of initiatives to enhance and develop accessible tourism projects and to raise awareness about accessible tourism experience in Queensland.
The Year of Accessible Tourism supports key actions in the Towards Tourism 2032 strategy.
Grants between $5,000 and $20,000 (GST exclusive) will be available for the development and/or enhancement of existing tourism infrastructure or products to develop more accessible visitor experiences and enhance accessibility for tourism workers.
The key objectives of the Fund are to support projects that will:
- increase the number of tourism and events businesses that are delivering exceptional and accessible customer experiences
- have a positive impact for the community through improved accessibility to visitors
- support and provide opportunities to the tourism and events industry to make improvements to accessibility for visitors and workers with disability.
Eligible applicants are able to apply for one (1) project only under the Boosting Accessible Tourism Experiences grant scheme or Accessible Tourism Infrastructure grant scheme.
This fund will open for applications in April 2023.
