On May 25, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, through the Department of Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation, announced a new $25 million support program to assist eligible tourism and hospitality business operators impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

About the Tourism and Hospitality Support Program

Eligible hospitality business operators may apply for a one-time, non-repayable grant of either $5,000 or $10,000, dependent on gross sales. In the event of applicants with less than $10,000 in annual sales in 2019, the grant rate will be calculated at 50 per cent of total sales or 50 per cent of expenditures for new start-ups.
