Nebraska Tourism opens marketing grant cycle

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LINCOLN, Neb. (October 19, 2018) – The Nebraska Tourism Commission’s application cycle is now open for both the Tourism Marketing Grant Program and Community Impact Grant Program. The programs offer funding opportunities to organizations to promote their events, destinations, community or region to travelers.

"Our current efforts are focused on out-of-state markets where we had great success this past year and where we believe our marketing dollars will have the most impact," said John Ricks, Nebraska Tourism Commission executive director. “The goal of the grant program is to help make it as affordable as possible for applicants to tie into the Commission’s major campaign efforts and benefit their local communities.”

The Tourism Marketing Grant Program encourages applicants to get involved in the group tour marketplace, attend agri-tourism related workshops, advertise in the Nebraska Travel Guide and on VisitNebraska.com, as well as take part in marketing efforts through the Commission's social media programs.

Through the Community Impact Grant program, large-scale events can apply for assistance to attract out-of-state visitors and generate favorable national or international press coverage for their event.
 
The grant cycle is open until December 14, 2018. Grant recipients will be announced February 1, 2019. Click here to view grant guidelines. (https://visitnebraska.com/media/industry/category/grants
