Non-repayable contributions for 1,040 small tourism businesses to seize the opportunities of the recovery!

The Tourism Small Business Assistance Project provides non-repayable contributions of $45,000 or less per business. These contributions are intended to support small tourism businesses in carrying out small investment projects to adapt or develop their products and services to the needs of their clientele in order to support their development and seize recovery opportunities.
