For FAA Member Businesses

Professional Development and Employee Advancement  Grant Program

Grant funds are envisioned to increase the ability of FAA member businesses to provide effective professional development programs to their staff. Grant funds are not intended to replace existing funding sources, but rather to expand them. Grant applications will be assessed based on their long-term impact internally and the consequential impact on the guest experience. Grant funds may not be used toward registration for the FAA’s Annual Conference.

This grant program will promote the Foundation’s mission to develop the Florida attraction industry’s workforce and prepare for future challenges.

Qualifying programs can include – individual or group programs for professional development, specific skills training, job-specific certifications, leadership development, and industry conferences.
