Capital Development Funding Support

There are currently no Capital Funding Schemes open for applications.

Tourism NI provides funding support for tourism capital projects through the Tourism Development Scheme (TDS).  Between 2008 to 2011 Tourism NI supported a wide range of new tourism developments throughout Northern Ireland.

Through the Programme for Government, the Northern Ireland Executive provided Tourism NI with £60 million of capital investment in support of local tourism infrastructure. Support was given to initiatives which improved visitor attractions, activity tourism products, public realm, visitor information and tourist information centres, etc. This funding also supported the development of Tourism NI’s Signature Projects which were identified for their potential to create international stand out and world class visitor attractions in Northern Ireland.
