Tourism is an important part of the City of Grants Pass’ economic success; as such, the City of Grants Pass designates 12 percent of eligible tourism funds to the Sustainable Tourism Grant program. The application period for the Sustainable Tourism Grant program is now open.
This program supports promotional activities that will lead to sustainable tourism by attracting tourists and increasing overnight stays. Grants that focus on increasing tourism during off-peak periods, generate economic growth from tourists coming from outside a 50-mile radius, and provide increased economic benefit for local businesses and non-profit organizations are the most competitive.
This program has a spring and fall cycle dependent upon available funds. Open call for applications will begin in March and September each year. The grants range from a minimum of $2,500 to $5,000. No match is required for the grant.
Complete applications must be submitted to the Economic Development Division by the closing deadline. Applications can be downloaded, scanned, and emailed to Dana Pearce, Economic Development Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or a hard copy can be mailed to or dropped off at City Hall, 101 NW A Street #202, Grants Pass, OR 97526.
