Dear Tourism Business Owner
The Department of Tourism hereby wishes to inform you that a new application window for grant funding for the Green Tourism Incentive Programme and the Tourism Transformation Fund has opened from 1 April 2019 to 30 June 2019.
The Green Tourism Incentive Programme is a resource efficiency incentive with the objective to encourage private sector tourism enterprises to move towards the sustainable management of water and energy resources whilst adhering to responsible tourism practices. Through grant funding, the programme assists private sector tourism enterprises in reducing the cost of investing in more energy and water efficient operations.
The Tourism Transformation Fund is a dedicated capital investment mechanism to drive transformation in the tourism sector in a more direct and impactful manner. It aims to assist small and micro black-owned tourism enterprises to expand and grow their tourism enterprises through a combination of grant funding, debt financing and equity contributions
More detailed information on both grant funding incentives are contained in the brochures available for download below, and we would like to encourage all eligible tourism businesses to apply for the funding during the current application window period.
