County Business Development Center Seeks Applicants
FONDA — The Montgomery County Business Development Center announces the release of the 2019 Montgomery County Local Tourism Grant Program. The Local Tourism Grant Program awards monies in the form of grants for programs, projects, events and individuals that will attract tourists (non-resident participants) to Montgomery County. Grants may not be used solely to serve residents. Non-profit and for-profit organizations, clubs, individuals, groups, sole businesses and business consortiums in Montgomery County may apply.
“The Local Tourism Grant Program is a terrific way to help organizations build on events they are planning that will attract visitors and draw people in to visit Montgomery County,” County Executive Matthew L. Ossenfort said. “Our county is full of historical landmarks, main street shops and restaurants and is the ultimate playground for year-round outdoor and recreational activities. This program helps highlight all of these wonderful things to do.”
The Montgomery County Local Tourism Grant Program is funded by Montgomery County’s Occupancy Tax and is administered by the Department of Economic Development & Planning. The application and grant guidelines are available by CLICKING HERE.
“One of our main priorities is promoting tourism in Montgomery County,” Legislative Chairman Robert Headwell Jr. said. “We hope local organizations will recognize this opportunity and apply for funding that can help improve their events and our community.”
