In an effort to provide immediate and sustained assistance for tourism businesses, the Tourism Department has partnered with the Small Business Development Center Network to provide coaching and mentorship to help businesses navigate financial aid, identify specialized training, and adjust to shifts in regulatory and competitive environments for long-term success. The partnership provides tourism businesses with access to 7 business consultants to provide direct assistance and mentorship.
