Starting February 1, 2023, a new application category will open for the Texas Travel Industry Recovery Grant (TTIR) program through the Texas Economic Development & Tourism Office. The TTIR Program provides one-time grants of up to $20,000 for the recovery of Texas businesses in the tourism, travel, and hospitality industry that were negatively impacted during the pandemic. 

Applicants must submit supporting documents along with their application to demonstrate compliance with grant and eligibility requirements. This application round will remain open until remaining funds are dispersed. For eligibility and grant application details, deadlines, an application instruction video, and the TTIR application portal, visit

The TTIR Program was established by Senate Bill 8 and signed into law by the Governor following the 87th Legislative Session to administer $180 million of funds received from the Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Fund under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the TTIR Program staff by emailing [email protected]. And if you are lucky enough to be selected, please let us know so we can let folks know that you were successful.  Thanks for partnering with us in the great state of Texas in the outdoor hospitality industry!
