Funding. All you need to know.

Tasmanian Forests Intergovernmental Agreement

Tasmanian Forests Intergovernmental Agreement (TFIGA) – Economic Diversification Funding Stream

photo1.jpgIn May 2013 the Australian Government increased its funding commitment under the TFIGA’s economic diversification funding stream from $93 million to $100 million, and brought forward its expenditure over 15 years to over four years.

Funding is designed to invest in a Jobs and Growth Plan for Tasmania to assist it to diversify its economy as a result of the high Australian dollar and the downturn in the forest industry as a result of changing global markets.

A total of $10 million has already been allocated, leaving a balance of $90 million.

Funding decisions will be informed by the principles of the Economic Development Plan and actions identified in the three Regional Economic Development Plans.
