Beginning today, Texan businesses in the tourism, travel, and hospitality industry that were hard-hit due to COVID-19 can apply for the Texas Travel Industry Recovery Grant Program (TTIR).

The initiative was established by Senate Bill 8 and signed into law by Texas Governor Greg Abbott to distribute $180 million of funds received from the Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Fund under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

Applicants under the categories of RV parks and recreational camps, traveler accommodation, traveler arrangement and reservation services, convention and tradeshow organizers, and more are eligible for a one-time grant of up to $20,000.

Other eligible categories include arts, entertainment, and recreation; food services and drinking places; breweries; wineries; and distilleries.

The TTIR program application requires all applicants to submit supporting documents along with their application to demonstrate compliance with grant and eligibility requirements.

In line with the opening of applications, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and Tourism will host a series of webinars for specific industry groups to provide more information and answer questions on the application process and the TTIR program:

  • Breweries, Wineries, Distilleries, Travel Arrangement & Reservation Services, Convention & Trade Show Organizers, and RV Parks & Recreational Camps Webinar – Tuesday, July 12, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m., CT
