What is The Tourism Partnership Fund?

The Tourism Partnership Fund (TPF) is a grant program operated by the USAID BEST project to encourage local initiatives and businesses to invest in and develop Jordan's tourism sector and competitiveness and support the goals and objectives of the tourism project. These include contributing to industry competitiveness, tourism promotion, creating jobs and enhancing tourism products, assets, and enterprises.
