2013 Grant Guidelines Ready
Release Date: Jul 24, 2012
Organizational Partnership and Scenic Byway Grant guidelines for 2013 grants are now available. The two programs have been combined into one set of guidelines. The grant program is offered to assist communities and scenic byway organizations in attracting travelers to Minnesota. Information on the program and guidelines for grants are posted on the industry website.
The maximum grant amount for 2013 is $4,000, requiring a 1:1 or 2:1 match. Organizations with total income of $100,000 or less in 2012 qualify for a 1:1 match; those with total income over $100,000 are required to match at 2:1. The grant program will be supplemented with a more comprehensive co-operative advertising program to be announced shortly.
