City Tourism Committee to Offer Grants
Applications due Dec. 1
City Times Staff
The Stevens Point Area Tourism Development Committee is now accepting grant applications for development of local attractions.
The grants are being made possible for the first time via the Tourism Development Committee. Grants are available only for nonprofit organizations or local government entities located inside Portage County.
The deadline for applications is December 1, 2017.
Applicable projects include capital — construction projects, upgrades, enhancements, expansions to existing facilities, and permanent exhibit installations — or special projects — to include exhibitions or events and signage.
All projects must contribute to the ability to attract visitors and improve overall tourism assets in the Stevens Point Area.
The Stevens Point Area Tourism Development Committee distributes a percentage of room tax revenue for the development, continuance, or expansion of visitor attractions and amenities to nonprofits and units of government.
“Each project selected will be of the highest quality and benefit tourism within the Stevens Point Area,” a press release from the CVB reads in part.
