Grants to Indiana nonprofit and for-profit organizations to increase local tourism in eligible locations. Funding is intended to support events and projects that will attract out-of-town visitors, such as conferences, shows, conventions, sporting events, community festivals, and other tourism-related attractions. Grants are awarded to organizations that sponsor events, festivals, and annual attractions or who work to promote and grow tourism in Boone County.

Types of funded advertising may include radio, television, billboards, website advertising, direct mail and brochure development (excludes program books and information to be distributed during the event), all designed to increase attendance at an event or attraction.

New events that bring overnight visitors to stay in the county’s lodging facilities are typically given the most favorable consideration when awarding grant funds.
