Thank you for your interest in a Tourism grant from the Greene County Tourist Promotion Agency (GCTPA). Tourism grants are only available to current GCTPA partners and are awarded once a year. Grants are funded solely through the Local Occupancy Tax (Hotel/Motel Tax) and represent 10 percent of the annual tax revenue plus an additional $10,000 reserved for Capital Development & Improvements. A limited number of grants is available each year. Information about partnership can be found here.
The GCTPA Board of Directors reserves the right to fund events, activities and projects, wholly, partially, or even above the stated maximum, at its discretion as related to the GCTPA mission and goals, overall budget, and available funds. An application is not a guarantee of funding.
Applicants should not assume that they will be awarded a grant on an annual basis, nor should they consider these tourism grants a permanent addition to their budget.
Per state regulations (Act 18 of 2016), all grant requests must provide documentation of at least 25 percent matching funds.
