New EDA Funds Support Tourism and Outdoor Recreation

As our industry continues the path to recovery, we‘re pleased to report that tourism and outdoor recreation funding will be available as part of the Economic Development Administration’s $3 billion American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) investment in communities and local economies. We are identifying the key funds that will best serve our industry’s recovery. 

Available across six different programs, these historic recovery funds will support infrastructure, workforce development and other projects to help our hard-hit tourism industry, and create community economic resilience for the future. Of particular note is the Tourism, Travel, and Outdoor Recreation competitive grant will be available to fund the development of travel, tourism and outdoor recreation pandemic recovery strategies and the implementation of recovery projects.
