CARES Act Resources from U.S. Travel

Mar 30, 2020


From Tori Emerson Barnes @ 9:27 PM March 30

After last week's passage of the CARES Act, we know that many of you have questions about what aid you qualify for and how you can apply for it. I wanted to share several U.S. Travel resources that may be able to help provide some answers and make sure our industry is getting the assistance it needs.

CARES Act Webinar

U.S. Travel hosted a webinar earlier today to walk our members through the provisions of the CARES Act for which travel industry companies are eligible. Please see helpful resources below—all of which are also available on our CARES Act resources page—to ensure as many travel companies as possible are equipped to take advantage of the assistance available and provide guidance on how to navigate the recently passed relief package.

Please feel free to re-distribute and share all the resources through your networks.

  • View the full slide deck outlining CARES Act provisions and eligibility (PowerPoint slides available upon request)
  • View an FAQ that answers many of your questions from today. We will continue to add to this page, which will be available with other resources.
  • For the full recording with slides and audio, click below.

In the webinar, U.S. Travel's government relations team shared detailed information about the following CARES Act provisions, including who is eligible, what kind of financial assistance is provided and how companies can apply, as well as any outstanding questions or direction still to come from the administration:

Other CARES Act Resources

U.S. Travel's CARES Act page has a host of other resources as well, most notably a Guide to CARES Act Eligibility that can walk you through exactly what your organization is eligible for:


Our page also includes other official resources from the Small Business Administration, House Small Business Committee, U.S. Department of Labor and Department of Homeland Security, among other materials.

Please feel free to continue to submit your specific questions about the CARES Act here—we will do our best to answer all of them and continue to do everything we can to get our industry the assistance it needs.


Please stay healthy,
