Two Helpful Tools for Tourism & Cultural Providers

QTIC Grants Gateway

Each year there are billions of dollars provided in grants. All levels of government – federal, state and local – distribute grants, as do many philanthropic and community foundations, some other not-for-profit organisations, and some businesses.

The QTIC Grants Gateway provides a curated list of available funding grants and programs across Australia that are relevant to businesses in the tourism industry in Queensland – we have started the sorting for you!

Grants vary greatly from funder to funder and from program to program – one program may have only a couple of hundred dollars to give away; another, tens of thousands or millions.

Grants also differ in who is eligible for the money, how they go about picking the 'winners', and what they ask of grantees in return for their cash.

See the information you need first – What is it for? Who is eligible? How much is available? When does it close? The Grants Gateway provides a snapshot of each grant so you can quickly assess whether it suits you or not.

NOTE: QTIC is currently offering FREE membership, please join to take advantage of this useful tool
