Tourism Grant Program 

Visit Howard County is committed to creating a better quality of life for residents and visitors.

The purpose of this program is to cultivate events that draw attendees to Howard County and engage residents, not to be the primary patron of either the event or a fundraising beneficiary. In many cases our organization elects to support events using cooperative marketing. Modest funding request amounts based on your overall budget, or requests for cooperative marketing are more likely to be considered. 

Grant requests should be for events more than ninety days away. Submissions are reviewed by Tourism staff then submitted to the Tourism Executive Committee for final decision; this may take more than two months.

Applications for an event grant are being accepted for the period July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018. This Program is funded annually; applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible.
