This fund is managed by the City’s Tourism Advisory Committee. Grant funds are used for event start-up costs to outside agencies; new marketing campaigns or expanded advertising for a new element of an existing event; or travel expenses to submit proposals to host events, conferences, and trade shows. The funds shall not be used for wages or benefits.

About the committee

The Tourism Advisory Committee meets as needed to discuss tourism-related activities, opportunities, and challenges; review and oversee tourism programs; and advise City Council on the expenditure of funds on tourism-related activities and tourism matters. The committee also awards Collaborative Tourism Promotion (CTP) grants should those funds exist in the budget.
