Tourism Demand Driver Infrastructure (TDDI)
The Tourism Demand-Driver Infrastructure (TDDI) programme commenced in July
2014 and terminated in June 2018. The Commonwealth provided funding of
$43.1 million over four years to the State and Territory governments.
Through TDDI, each State and Territory determined the processes used to
allocate the TDDI funding in their own jurisdiction, and which projects
received TDDI funding. The projects were strategically aligned with
relevant state, regional and destination plans, and were aimed at driving
demand, improving quality and increasing tourism expenditure, in order to
assist the tourism industry to meet
targets. For information on the program and other grant programs, email email@example.com.
