Government Support for business

See our COVID-19 For Business page

The Mark McGowan Government has launched a $14.4 million recovery package to support small tourism operators around the State to adapt and refocus their businesses in the COVID-19 landscape. The $14.4 million initiative includes two funding programs - with an initial $10.4 million in one-off cash grants for up to 1,600 individual small businesses around the State.

The $6,500 grants will provide immediate support to eligible tourism operators. The second, $4 million Tourism Business Survival Grants package will be available for tourism operators dealing with exceptionally difficult circumstances - with grants of $25,000-$100,000 available.

The funding announcement follows the establishment of Tourism WA's dedicated COVID-19 Industry Support Team last month. The team has contacted hundreds of Western Australian tourism operators to offer help and support, while gathering information to help guide recovery initiatives.

More information on the Tourism Recovery Fund and the online application form can be found on Tourism WA's corporate website at www.tourism.wa.gov.au
