CCT: Tourism Product Development (TPD) Grants

Tourism Product Development (TPD) Grants

Due to recent budget reductions, the Tourism Product Development Grant program will not be offered for FY13 (covering the project period of April 2013 to May 31, 2014).
Tourism Product Development Grants are designed to assist non-profit tourism entities in their efforts to develop new tourism products or expand existing tourism products that build assets valuable in creating a tourism destination, a statewide initiative or theme based experience to increase high value visitation. The minimum grant funds that may be requested are $30,000 and the maximum is $100,000.
Grant awards must be matched on a 50 percent basis. State funds cannot be used as a match. The program seeks to raise dollars by creating partnerships with private sector industry. Applicants must have a non-profit status prior to application. If there are partners in the project, the lead applicant must have non-profit status while other partners can be either non-profits and/or for-profits.
