The Tourism Development Fund is now inviting submissions from applicants with initiatives that will benefit the tourism industry.
The fund was established by the States of Jersey in 2004 to encourage and support tourism in the Island. To date, the fund has made 136 offers of grants totalling in excess of £6 million in support of many successful events, projects and infrastructure developments covering the spectrum of tourism initiatives.
The Chairman of the Tourism Development Fund, Peter Funk, said "Tourism is vital to our economy and the role of the fund is to support the industry. We are delighted to be able to consider applications from the private sector, non-profit organisations, and individuals with good ideas that will bring more visitors to Jersey and improve our already rich tourism offering. We look forward to receiving some exciting proposals."
Projects should be able to demonstrate the potential to bring more visitors to the Island, to attract additional funding from other sources, enhance the visitor experience and to be sustainable in years to come.
The closing date for applications is 5pm on Friday 27 March 2015.
