Wisconsin Creates $8 Million Tourism Aid Program – Racine County Eye

14September 2020

MADISON– Applications are being accepted through Sept. 28 for the Tourism Relief to Accelerate Vitality and Economic Lift (TRAVEL) stimulus grant program. The $8 million effort aims to help bring back financial activity to Wisconsin's tourism market that has actually suffered losses coming from this year's COVID-19 public health emergency.

Administered by the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, the TRAVEL grants will be distributed to state tourist promotion and tourism development organizations to resume service operations.

“The tourist industry is among the hardest hit by COVID-19,” Gov. Tony Evers said in a news release Monday. “The TRAVEL grants are created to sustain regional operations, staffing, and relief stimulus activities to drive instant costs and enhance safe travel in support of local services across the state.”

The state's discretionary Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act dollars fund the effort. Complete program details, eligibility requirements, grant application, and program contact information are offered at TravelWisconsin.com.

Authorities plan to announce the grantees by late October.
