NT event organisers eligible for up to $30k in support

The Northern Territory has announced a new joint state and territory $10.3 million support package for struggling event, tourism and hospitality operators.

Conference organisers who saw a 30 per cent decline in revenue will be able to receive payments between $5000 and $30,000.

Tourism and hospitality businesses will also be able access to payments of $1000 to $3000.

The support is in addition to $1000-a-week payments from the NT Government for eligible Greater Darwin and Katherine businesses impacted by last week’s lockdowns.

“We know that tourism and hospitality have been very hard hit by coronavirus,” Tourism and Hospitality Minister Natasha Fyles said.

“We were very conscious before our lockdown that the lockdowns in New South Wales and Victoria were having an impact on Northern Territory businesses and so this… scheme will be available from next week.”
