(MITCHELL) - Those hosting attractions, festivals or events in Lawrence County can apply for a Lawrence Tourism grant.

The grant provides funding to organizations seeking to produce and promote tourism-oriented attractions, festival or events within the county.

Completed grant applications will be accepted through Jan. 30. The guidelines focus on four main points: The ability to draw visitors from outside of Lawrence County; the potential for growth of the event; generation of overnight stays; and the potential for food and beverage sales throughout the community.

Grant applications will be judged by a committee of Lawrence County Tourism Commission staff and board members, based on criteria outlined in the application materials. Grants are for events taking place later in the year.

Lawrence County Tourism has distributed more than $210,000 in funds to local attractions and event organizers since 1994.

Grant applications are available at the Lawrence County Visitors Center, 533 W. Main St., Mitchell. Anyone with questions about the program may contact (812) 849-1090 or by email
