COVID-19 International Tourism Adaptation Grant

Queensland’s tourism businesses will be supported to pivot to a domestic market or hibernate until international markets reopen.

The COVID-19 International Tourism Adaptation Grant program was a key element of the Queensland Economic Recovery Strategy: Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs to help accelerate the State’s recovery from COVID-19.

The program provided financial assistance to regional Queensland tourism businesses with headquarters located in Queensland and primarily operating outside the Greater Brisbane Area of Brisbane City Council, Redlands City Council, Logan City Council, Ipswich City Council and Moreton Bay Regional Council local government areas.

It directly supported tourism businesses who have suffered losses of income because of the COVID-19 travel restrictions. It was designed to assist eligible applicants in the above local government areas pivot their product, service and/or marketing to a domestic tourism market and meet operating costs while the business hibernated until international markets reopen.

The assistance available under this program was a grant from a minimum of $2,000 to a maximum of $10,000 (excluding GST) per applicant.

The COVID-19 International Tourism Adaption Grant is now closed.
