The WA Government, through Tourism WA, committed $14.4 million to the WA Tourism Recovery Program; a package to support the tourism industry during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This support package consisted of two funding programs; the Tourism Recovery Fund and the Tourism Business Survival Grant.

On October 5, 2020 the WA Government announced the outstanding funding from the Tourism Recovery Fund would be used for the Tourism Business Survival Grant program which attracted hundreds of applications.

Tourism Business Survival Grant

The Tourism Business Survival Grant provided successful eligible tourism operators demonstrating extreme business hardship with grants of $15,000 to $100,000.

This was a competitive process and applicants were assessed on the level of hardship their business faced, its importance to the local tourism industry, how they have marketed their business in the past and if they had a recovery plan for the future.

Applications for the Tourism Business Survival Grant closed on  July 6, 2020 and all successful applicants have been notified of the outcome.
