T-QUAL Grants 2013 ap­pli­ca­tions now open

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

TOURISM busi­nesses have un­til 3 May 2013 to ap­ply for a grant un­der the 2013 round of the Aus­tralian Government’s T-QUAL Grants - Tourism Qual­ity Projects pro­gram.

The T-QUAL pro­gram pro­vides fund­ing be­tween $15,000 and $100,000 for projects which in­crease the sup­ply and va­ri­ety of high qual­ity tourism prod­ucts and ex­pe­ri­ences. Ap­pli­cants must match the fund­ing on at least a dol­lar for dol­lar ba­sis. As with pre­vi­ous rounds, the 2013 round will be highly con­tested. Ap­pli­cants must demon­strate a strong com­mit­ment to qual­ity, prefer­ably through mem­ber­ship of one of the or­gan­i­sa­tions ac­cred­ited un­der the Aus­tralian Government’s T-QUAL Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Frame­work.

Jun­gle Surf­ing Canopy Tours were suc­cess­ful in se­cur­ing a T-QUAL grant in 2012 and it would be fan­tas­tic to see fur­ther tourism in­vest­ment in the re­gion through this pro­gram.
