U.S. Travel hosted the first-ever Travel's Virtual Hill Week where nearly 300 industry members participated in 75 online meetings with lawmakers and their staff in both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. The meetings were complemented by a robust social media and grassroots campaign to drive home the message: restoring travel will restore America. Thank you to all who were involved.
The week's advocacy priorities focused on:
- Extending Paycheck Protection Program eligibility to destination marketing organizations (DMOs).
- Tax incentives for a strong and safe restart of the travel economy.
- Protection from frivolous COVID-related lawsuits for businesses that follow proper health and safety guidelines.
- Providing $10 billion in Economic Development Administration grants for DMOs and small businesses.
You can continue to advocate on behalf of our industry by sending an action alert and sharing our message on social media.
