Rostourism announced the start of a program for receiving grants for the development of domestic and inbound tourism. The corresponding message was published on the agency's website.

“Rosturizm starts collecting applications for grants for the development of domestic and inbound tourism. This is a new support measure in the tourism industry. For its implementation, the government allocated a subsidy of 1.2 billion rubles. Funding will be received for projects related to the creation of infrastructure that allows you to comfortably relax in nature. We are talking about modern campsites, car campsites, modular hotels, etc. ", - said in Rosturizm.

They also noted that in addition to this, grants will be allocated for the development of new tourist routes and the improvement of existing ones, including navigation, security, organization of recreation areas, etc. Payments will also be provided to create an accessible environment for people with disabilities.

“For the first time in the history of Russian tourism, entrepreneurs who create new modern tourism products and solutions will receive direct support from the state. In fact, we are talking about support for startups in tourism, which will help in the coming years to change the face of Russian tourism - to make it more accessible, interesting and diversified. Today we are pleased to announce the start of the competition, the results of which will be announced in November, ”said Zarina Doguzova, head of the Federal Tourism Agency.
