Minneapolis Gov announces million-dollar grant to revive tourism

Published on : Friday, November 27, 2020

In response to the severe impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on tourism in the state, Gov. Tim Walz announced Wednesday that over $1 million in grants would be made available for the industry.


The crisis grants will be available through Explore Minnesota, the state’s tourism promotion office.


“COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the Minnesota travel industry and communities that rely on that tourism,” said Walz. “These crisis grants will provide immediate relief for the travel organizations that contribute so much to the vitality of our state.”


The grants are designed to support non-profit tourism promotion organisations so they can stimulate travel and help their local communities.


“Explore Minnesota is happy to offer financial assistance to destination marketing organisations that have been deeply impacted by the pandemic, including significant budget shortfalls and tourism spending loss,” said Explore Minnesota Director John Edman.
