(MITCHELL) - Lawrence County Tourism 2018 grant program deadline is approaching. The grant provides funding to events that will contribute positively to the growth of tourism to Lawrence County.

Lawrence County Tourism has distributed more than $271,000 in funds to local attractions and event organizers since 1994.

Completed grant applications will be accepted through January 31. Applicants must be organizations seeking to produce and promote a well-defined tourism-oriented attraction, festival or event within the boundaries of Lawrence County.

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 of Directors based on criteria outlined in the application materials.

Grant application deadline will be January 31, for events taking place later in the year.

Grant applications are available at the Lawrence County Visitors Center located at 533 W Main St in Mitchell. Anyone with questions about the program may contact Lawrence County Tourism Executive Director Tonya Chastain, (812) 849-1090,
