The Tourism Enhancement Grant application is now available for counties and cities seeking to enhance existing tourism assets or develop new infrastructure to increase economic impact. Tourism Enhancement Grants are designed for cities and counties seeking to invest in local tourism infrastructure assets such as stages, boat ramps, scenic pull-offs and other resources that target expanding local tourism.


Round three marks the first round the Tourism Enhancement Grant will be managed by the Department of Tourist Development. The first two rounds of the Tourism Enhancement Grant were managed by Department of Economic and Community Development. The third round of Tourism Enhancement Grant offers communities the opportunity for awards of up to $75,000, in an increase in funding from previous rounds.


Interested local governments must submit their completed application by Jan. 31, 2018. To find the grant application, an overview and additional information, click here.
