Grant Funding Available For Festivals, Attractions, Events

Last updated on Friday, June 7, 2013

(MITCHELL) - Lawrence County Tourism is continuing a grant program to provide funding to Lawrence County attractions, festivals and events.

The program encourages the development of events that will contribute positively to the growth of tourism in the area.
The deadline to apply is June 30. Applicants must be organizations seeking to produce and promote a well-defined tourism-oriented attraction, festival or event within Lawrence County.

To be considered for grant funding, events must be held within the boundaries of Lawrence County, must be open to the general public and must show potential to draw visitors from outside the Lawrence County area. Grant applications will be judged by a committee of Lawrence County Tourism staff and Board of Directors based on criteria outlined in the application materials.
