FEEDBACK REQUIRED
ACTA lobby efforts for continued aid and roadmap for recovery
ACTA is launching an urgent survey looking for feedback on the financial sustainability of the travel agent sector and what it will look like without expanded and enhanced aid past June. 
 
Please take 5 minutes and complete the survey before the end of this week!
 
The survey will provide insight for the government into the success of the Highly Affected Sectors Credit Availability Program (HASCAP) loan to see if it is working for those it was intended for—the Hardest Hit businesses.
