The Office of Indian Economic Development's Tribal Tourism Grant Program (TTGP) aims to support tribal economic development and fulfill the mission of the NATIVE Act by providing funding for tribes to conduct feasibility studies to help them make informed decisions about potential tourism projects.  

TTPG also provides funding for tribes to develop business plans for already completed tourism feasibility studies. In addition to feasibility studies, TTPG may fund business plans for tribal tourism businesses that are recovering from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
