The SLHTA convened another meeting of with the board of trustees of the Tourism Enhancement Fund on Wednesday 31st August 2019 under the Chairmanship of Mr. Winston Anderson of Sandals Resorts. Main agenda items included presentations from a number of agencies and organizations seeking grant funding for projects ranging from product enhancement, human resources development and community development.
The SLHTA’s Tourism Enhancement Fund convenes meetings every eight weeks to monitor the progress of projects financed. Calls for new projects for financing are held twice annually, usually in January and July of each year.
The SLHTA TEF has supported over 200 projects since its formation in 2013 and disbursed over five million dollars in support. These funds are donated by our guests through a number of our participating resorts.
