    The Washington Tourism Alliance (WTA) is pleased to partner with the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) to provide support to small agritourism businesses through the WSDA Relief and Recovery Grant. Many Washington farms, ranches and other businesses offer agritourism experiences to visitors. The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply impacted many of these visitor operations, their business revenue and businesses expenses. This grant serves to bolster the viability of the Washington State agricultural and tourism industries, helping prevent business closures, and hence supporting the health and diversity of Washington State’s economy.
    Grant Amount: Grant amount is $15,000.
