    Dear Industry Partner,

    Yesterday, Governor Ron DeSantis announced that he is recommending $50 million in federal stimulus funding for VISIT FLORIDA, bringing his total budget recommendation for our organization to $100 million. 

    This is fantastic news for Florida’s tourism industry and economy as we continue our recovery efforts. The travel and tourism sector has been hit disproportionately hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the expanded investment will further equip VISIT FLORIDA to bring back Florida’s tourism economy sooner and better than ever. Governor DeSantis’ actions have been absolutely essential for restoring visitation to our state, and we sincerely appreciate his leadership and support.     

    We encourage you to contact your legislators in the Florida House and Senate to voice your support of the Governor's recommendation for VISIT FLORIDA and the positive impact it will have on your business and community.

    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.


    Sincerely,

    Dana Young
    President and CEO, VISIT FLORIDA
