COVID-Safe Travel Promotion and Marketing Grant Program Launch

The Alaska Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development (DCCED) Division of Community and Regional Affairs (DCRA) has launched the COVID-Safe Travel Promotion and Marketing Grant Program.

DCCED encourages nonprofit entities engaged in tourism marketing and promotion to apply no later than 4:30 p.m. on Monday, May 10, 2021.

This is a competitive, multi-award grant opportunity for the rapid deployment of marketing campaigns promoting Alaska as a COVID-safe travel destination for the Summer of 2021. Promotions may be marketed toward in-state travelers as well as independent travelers in national and international markets.

Four levels of grants will be awarded, ranging from $100,000-$3,000,000, with a total of $10 million available. Qualifying nonprofits should submit proposals to promote Alaska as a COVID-safe travel destination, encourage Alaskans to get out and explore the State and increase awareness of vaccine availability in national and international independent travel markets.
