Apply Now for a Tourism Development Grant

The Hernando County Tourism Bureau is pleased to invite applications for local special event grant funding. This will be the sole opportunity to request grant funding for local events planned between October 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018. For consideration, completed applications must be received by July 31. Oral presentation to the Tourism Development Council will occur at the August 9 TDC meeting, held at the
Brooksville – Tampa Bay Regional Airport.

The primary purpose for the Tourism Special Event Grant Funding Program is to provide funding for local organizations for marketing of special events that promote Hernando County as a tourist destination. Funds received pursuant to the Special Event Grant Funding Program must be used for expenditures associated with marketing and promoting the event to visitors and guests outside of Hernando County, with the goal of encouraging overnight visitors.
