Legislature Awards Spring 2018 Tourism Program Grants

Tuesday, May 1, 2018

The Legislature approved nearly $485,000 in funding as part of the Spring 2018 round of Tompkins County Tourism Grants, as recommended by the County’s Strategic Tourism Planning Board.  More than 60 separate grants, comprising six distinct grant programs, were awarded to area nonprofit cultural and recreational organizations, venues, and municipalities in support of initiatives that help draw overnight visitors to Tompkins County and promote tourism-related economic development.  Funded by countywide lodging taxes, the grants were awarded under the Tourism Capital, New Tourism Initiative, Tourism Project, Tourism Marketing and Advertising, Community Celebrations, and Strategic Tourism Implementation categories.
