2014 Grant Applications Deadline Approaching
Release Date: Oct 09, 2013
The postmark deadline for grant applications for the 2014 grant program is Tuesday, October 15, 2013. Applicants are encouraged to send applications to your regional manager as soon as possible so they can review them for any errors. Once the postmark deadline of October 15 has passed, no changes can be made to the application.
The grant program is offered to assist designated community tourism organizations and scenic byway organizations in attracting travelers to Minnesota. Click here for a copy of the Explore Minnesota Grant guidelines for 2014.
The streamlined application process no longer requires a rate card from the advertising vendor. In addition, grant requests do not need to include a copy of the organization's budget as it did last year. Only applicants requesting a 1:1 match must sign an affidavit confirming their budget is less than $100,000.
If you are a Minnesota nonprofit tourism or scenic byway organization and want further information about the grant program, contact your regional manager:
