Who will be eligible for support through RRTF?

It is important to note that support is available to an entity that:

  • has an ABN and directly impacts the Island's visitor economy,
  • can be a start-up business, but must be delivering a product/service to visitors,
  • can be a not-for-profit - such as a conservation group or progress association is included,
  • can be delivering wider facilities and services, not just a 'product', such as walking trails or visitor information servicing

Ineligible activities - those already being fully supported through other sources, or that are already funded on an ongoing basis by other Australian, state or territory, or local government programs.
