How to Participate in the $3 Billion Investing In America’s Communities Grant Opportunities
Recorded On: 08/18/2021
Grant programs specifically focused on the travel and tourism sector and other related areas in the United States have finally been released. The U.S. Department of Commerce announced that the Economic Development Administration (EDA) will implement a series of programs, collectively called Investing in America’s Communities, to invest the $3 billion it received from American Rescue Plan Act to help communities across the country. Investing in America’s Communities is made up of six separate grant funding opportunities, most notably the $750 million Travel, Tourism, and Outdoor Recreation Grants. In this webinar Destinations International will review all six of the new grant funding opportunities with notable attention on the Travel, Tourism, and Outdoor Recreation Grants as well as take questions from attendees.

Introduced to the world of destination organizations by a random internship application to Visit Baltimore (then known as Baltimore Area Convention & Visitors Association), Andreas Weissenborn began an unexpected career into hospitality that left him with a continued passion towards the tourism industry.
Weissenborn spent just short of 11 years with Visit Baltimore helping with its Research, Technology, and Information Systems across the organization. In 2017, he joined the Association on behalf of a Destinations International Foundation initiative to be a dedicated research source for Destinations International.
