Tourism Recovery and Investment Plan

The amount being received by Kentucky state government from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) is in excess of $2.1 billion and the federal legislation specifically cites support of the travel, tourism and hospitality industry as an allowable use of those funds. KTIA has developed a proposal that has been presented to the General Assembly and the Governor and legislative leaders requesting industry recovery and investment funds in the amount of $75 million from the state’s ARP allocation.


KTIA members are urged to contact their legislators to encourage their support of an appropriation of American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act funds for the industry’s recovery and long-term strength as an economic engine for Kentucky. Specifically, request support for KTIA’s Tourism Industry Recovery & Investment Plan. 

In addition to utilizing the one-page industry plan in communicating with legislators, KTIA members can also use information from TRIP Notes, a specialized newsletter KTIA is sending on a biweekly basis to all members of the General Assembly to keep legislative attention focused on the KTIA plan and the continuing needs of the industry. Below is a link to past issues of TRIP Notes.
