WEBINAR: Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Geotourism 

Growing Community Tourism During Unprecedented Times in Tourism
Thursday, April 9th at 1:00pm (eastern)
Register Today
This hour-long webinar will explain the concepts of geotourism and how it relates to The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. As tourism continues to diminish with the outbreak of Covid-19, it is as important as ever for communities to remain united and create a plan of action for when visitors return. The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail has built a new travel website -- https://lewisandclark.travel/ -- specifically designed to bring together businesses, attractions, landmarks, and other points of interest on and around the trail to help promote sustainable tourism.

If one needs to stay home and be isolated for a period of time (14 day), that can play a toll on our Mental Health, so let's help with some resources and self care that might help:
  • Phone: can you facetime? Even communicating through Yahoo Messenger will help us feel connected 
  • Hobbies: are there some hobbies you enjoy doing, this will be the time to add more or to finish that project
  • Water: stay well hydrated
  • Tele-health/Doctor/Peer Support: Therapists/counselors/peers that can do facetime/video chat - can help us with those anxiety moments
  • Self-Care: listening to music, playing video games, playing a game of chess with the dog and winning!, even playing cards with someone over a video platform - what is in the Self Care Recovery tool kit?
  • Montana Warmline: 877-688-3377

The CARES Act, the largest economic relief package in our nation’s history, was signed into law on March 27 and includes major provisions U.S. Travel fought for to deliver economic support to travel businesses, travel workers and their families. Learn what the different parts of CARES Act mean for you and your travel business with the guides below:

CARES Act Highlights for the Tourism Industry: The CARES Act contains important measures for tourism communities, including:

  • Recovery Promotion. $1.5 billion for the Economic Development Administration to support distressed cities. This funding has been earmarked for “open for business” campaigns at the appropriate time, and would follow the model the agency used to fund promotional efforts following the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf Coast.
  • Emergency Aid for State and Local Governments. To offset the rising costs and lowered tax revenue from falling business activity, $150 billion has been allocated for state and local governments, including $8 billion for tribal governments. Each state will receive a minimum of $1.5 billion.
  • Community Development Block Grants. $5 billion for states and local communities to mitigate economic disruptions in impacted industries, including direct grants to tourism businesses impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
  • $25 Billion for Infrastructure Grants to States.

Key Tourism Segments

  • Museums and Cultural Institutions. The CARES Act provides $75 million for the National Endowment for the Arts and $75 million for the National Endowment for the Humanities to distribute to local institutions address the economic damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Matching grant requirements are waived for this funding, as well as the requirement for grants to be project specific.
  • Distillers. A temporary exemption from an excise tax for alcohol used to make hand sanitizer that is produced and distributed within Food and Drug Administration guidelines.
  • Fishery Assistance. $300 million provided for shrimp and oyster producers who can no longer sell their products to restaurants, for charter fishery operators and other fishery-related entities that have economic revenue losses due to the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Airports. $10 billion to support airport operations through the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airport Improvement Program (AIP).
  • Connected Communities. $50 million for the Institute of Museum and Library Services to expand digital network access in areas of the country where such access is lacking, including the purchase of internet-enable devices such as “hotspots” to allow individuals in rural areas to remain connected.

Webinar: Monday March 30, U.S. Travel's government relations team hosted a webinar detailing what the CARES Act means for the travel industry. You can watch the full recording or review the slide deck.
