Tourism Infrastructure Fund Information Sessions

From the Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment

The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment will be holding  information sessions to discuss the new Tourism Infrastructure Fund (TIF).  We appreciate that this is short notice but we are wanting to allow maximum time for understanding the process and beginning to prepare project proposals before TIF  Round 1 opens shortly.

This will be an opportunity to find out more about the Fund, the criteria, what sorts of projects might qualify and how to apply for funding.  In preparation we suggest that you review the material at

We would appreciate you making every effort to attend, but recognise timelines may pose issues for some participants. The centres have been selected to give participants flexibility on their choice of venue and to not have to travel much more than 2 hours to attend. We intend to record all questions and answers raised at each session and will post them to the fund website to assist people who are unable to attend in person.

Please RSVP to

We will update this with the other venues as soon as they are confirmed.
