The Grant County Tourism Resource Committee is in charge of County publicity, development of recreation and attraction of industry to the County. The Committees revenue sources include annual appropriations from the Committees budget.
The purpose of the grant program is to assist Grant County based organizations in promoting a positive image to potential visitors, generate overnight visits, extend visitor stays and create a desire to return. Consideration shall be given to new and expanding projects, festivals, sports tournaments, conventions, cultural arts and special events benefiting Grant County and the region. This is a competitive application, based on limited resource dollars and the size of the grant award is capped at $2,500.00, per application cycle. The grants are reviewed bi-annually by the Tourism Resource Committee at the direction of the Grant County Board of Supervisors. Organizations interested in receiving funding from the Grant County Tourism and Resource Committee (TRC) must apply for funding. The next grant cycle will be due on July 12, 2013. Application materials are currently being updated and will be made available on this site when ready.
