  • Respond to and deliver innovative ideas that accelerate economic growth in the city
  • Deliver initiatives that are responsive and provide solutions to challenges faced by the city in a COVID environment
  • Support business growth through attraction, retention and building business capability initiatives
  • Contribute to a vibrant and dynamic city experience that grows the Visitor Economy sector (tourism, events/festivals, international students, and business events)
  • Position Adelaide as the most liveable city in the world

The total Strategic Partnership Program budget is $721,000. As at 1 December 2021 the balance of the funding pool is $420,000 and is subject to change.
