Regional Growth - Environment and Tourism Fund

The $300 million Regional Growth – Environment and Tourism Fund (RGETF) aims to increase tourist visitation by investing in regional environment and tourism infrastructure. It particularly focuses on assets that will grow and further diversify NSW regional economies.

Funding is allocated via an Expressions of Interest process, across a number of rounds.

We invite EOIs from government, local councils, Aboriginal Land Councils and other Aboriginal groups, community groups, private operators and non-government organisations.

First round applications closed on 20 April 2017 and are currently being assessed for shortlisting.
