A new grant scheme to help to kick-start the industry.
The Visitor Economy Grant Scheme is returning to support Oxfordshire businesses.
This major scheme is being led by OxLEP Business and aims to back the sector’s ongoing re-emergence from Covid-19 through a variety of positive interventions, with the scheme providing funds to eligible businesses, with grants ranging from £10,000 to £15,000 per business.
The visitor economy grant scheme is part of OxLEP’s Visitor Economy Renaissance Programme – a £1.64 million programme of activity assisting the recovery of Oxfordshire’s visitor economy.
Funding for the scheme was secured by OxLEP via the government’s Contain Outbreak Management Fund. OxLEP are working in partnership with Oxfordshire County Council to facilitate the funding process of its Visitor Economy Renaissance programme, which includes this grant scheme.
This is the second round of funding offered by OxLEP Business’ visitor economy grant scheme, following a successful first round completed in early-2023, that saw just over £660,000 directed into the sector across Oxfordshire companies.
OxLEP Business is once again looking to reach out to as many businesses operating within Oxfordshire’s visitor economy who could benefit from the scheme, including those whose companies sit within tourism-related sub sectors – many of which are vital to a successful visitor economy.
