LINCOLN, NΕΒ. – 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.
“Keeping Nebraska an exceptional place to visit is always a top priority, and the grant program is key in doing that,” said John Ricks, Nebraska Tourism Commission executive director. “Destinations and tourism attractions can get assistance to promote their marketing campaigns and events to travelers, all to showcase to visitors what our state has to offer.”
The Tourism Marketing Grant Program encourages applicants to request funding for a variety of marketing activities to promote their destination or event which include development of professional photography, participating in tourism industry seminars, taking part in marketing efforts through the Nebraska Tourism Commission’s social media programs and more.
Through the Community Impact Grant program, large-scale events can apply for marketing assistance to attract out-of-state visitors in an effort to generate favorable national or international press coverage for the state.
