Governor Ducey Invests In Tourism For Continued Economic Recovery
July 14, 2021
Governor Doug Ducey has announced $101.1 million in federal American Rescue Plan funds to aid tourism recovery statewide. The Visit Arizona initiative will support tourism- and hospitality-related activities such as events and venues, conferences, expositions, festivals, rodeos, stage performances and more. A first step is to express an interest in applying so you will be contacted by the Arizona Office of Tourism when the grants are live. Guidelines and application instructions will be posted by the Arizona Office of Tourism by July 30.
RESPOND > PLAN > RETURN STRONGER
The Arizona Commerce Authority and Local First Arizona — supported by a dynamic group of community partners — have launched a statewide initiative to help Arizona’s small businesses respond to the immediate impacts of COVID-19, plan for the future and return stronger than before. Over the course of a few months, local business leaders and subject matter experts will provide real-time support and available resources across Arizona in live, virtual sessions to help small businesses return stronger than they entered.
