The Municipality of Anchorage will begin accepting applications for the Tourism Grant Program beginning Feb. 3, 2021. This $7 million business relief program is supported by the municipality’s $156 million in CARES Act funding.
The Tourism Grant Program supports Anchorage tourism businesses facing economic hardship and loss of income from the pandemic’s effects on outside visitation. The program will provide three tiers of grants – $10,000, $25,000, or $50,000 – to a wide variety of businesses and organizations who rely primarily on visitation to the community. Grant amounts depend on the size of the business as measured by 2019 income.
Applicants can email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or for technical help with the application process.
