Nevada to receive £3.4m to boost tourism

The U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) is awarding a £3.4m grant to the Nevada Department of Tourism.

This grant will support construction of outdoor recreational visitor facilities in Boulder City and Carson City to enhance adventure tourism in the state and bolster the success of associated businesses.

This project is funded under EDA’s £223m competitive American Rescue Plan Travel, Tourism, and Outdoor Recreation program.

Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo, said: “This EDA investment in Nevada will help the region’s critical tourism and outdoor recreation sector not only recover from the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic but build back stronger for the future.”

“Tourism is the backbone of our economy here in Nevada,” said Senator Jacky Rosen. “Thanks to the American Rescue Plan that I helped pass, I’m proud to announce our state will receive millions in grant funding to boost the tourism and outdoor recreation sectors, create new opportunities for local businesses to thrive, and support sustainable economic growth.”
