Impact of COVID-19 funding

At the end of last year, the Scottish Government announced that tourism and events businesses across Scotland were to benefit from a £104.3 million Scottish Government package with an additional £25 million announced in February 2021.

We’ve delivered funding on behalf of Scottish Government over the past year that equates to just over £80 million.

If your business was successful in being awarded money – then we will be in touch with you soon.

As part of our ongoing monitoring of the tourism and events industry and the impact of COVID-19 funding, we will be looking for your feedback on how the Grant Award has helped your business.

Businesses do not need to do anything until we contact you in the coming weeks.

Reporting requirement outlined on Grant Award letter

We’ve created a very quick report to make it as easy as possible for you to meet the reporting requirements set out in your grant award agreement and will provide a three-week timeline to respond.

We will be in touch with you in the coming weeks to ask that you complete it, therefore there is no need to submit anything to us prior to this.

Your feedback will be of great importance and will enable us to assess the value of the Grant Award to successful applicants, and the impact of this funding on your organisation. 

If you have any queries in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at
