Tourism Accommodations Can Access Grants

Locals and visitors enjoy a stop in the ocean courtesy of these glass bottom boats. The boat tours are a unique activity that draws tourists to the island (2015).

The Tobago House of Assembly (THA) is offering support to the island’s tourism accommodation properties through Phase 2 of the Tourism Accommodation Relief Grant, which is being administered through the Tobago Tourism Agency Limited (TTAL).

Following the onset of this pandemic in 2020, the Tobago House of Assembly committed to supporting the people of Tobago: our business persons, our hotels and other businesses in the accommodation sector, in a number of ways,” said THA Chief Secretary Hon. Ancil K. Dennis.

The financial support will aid owners and operators of accommodation properties with reopening and recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The non-repayable grants can help cover operational expenses towards reopening, utility expenses, landscaping, expenses towards compliance with Health and Safety standards and TTIC Certification, and Public Liability Insurance.

Grants range from $50,000 to $300,000 and will be determined based on property size.

For the full grant guidelines, persons can visit and start the application process for Phase 2 of the Tourism Accommodation Relief Grant.
