The TTIR Program was established to provide one-time reimbursement grants of up to $20,000 for the recovery of Texas businesses in the tourism, travel, and hospitality industries that were negatively impacted due to COVID-19. These one-time grants are to reimburse eligible costs to these qualifying businesses.

The Texas Economic Development & Tourism Office continues to host webinars for each industry category in order to provide specific application information and answer questions on the program and application process.

We appreciate your help in spreading the word about this important resource available for the recovery of the Texas travel, tourism, and hospitality industries as these businesses are crucial to our state’s economy.
