Regional Hospitality Revival Fund

Up to $1 million is available under the Regional Hospitality Revival Fund for one-off rebate payments to assist eligible businesses up to a capped amount of $1 500 for costs associated with live performances, event staging, minor works and marketing activities that assist in driving visitation to regional areas.


The Fund aims to assist hospitality businesses in regional areas, and is open to eligible hospitality businesses located outside greater Hobart and Launceston. Businesses physically located in the greater Hobart or Launceston areas are not eligible to apply. A full list of ineligible postcodes is included in the guidelines.


The Regional Hospitality Revival Fund is not a competitive grant program, and applications will be assessed in order of receipt against the eligibility criteria through a two stage process:
* Stage one – Registration
* Stage two – Provision of rebate

Applicants must be assessed as eligible in Stage one to be able to receive a rebate in Stage two.

The Regional Hospitality Revival Fund will open for registration applications at 10:00am on Monday 23 August 2021 and close at 2:00pm on Monday 31 January 2022 (updated date, was 2 December 2021) or when funds are fully allocated, whichever occurs first.
