The mission of Travel Oregon is: “A better life for Oregonians through strong, sustainable local economies.” Travel Oregon has established a program to make grant awards available to “tourism promotion agencies for wine and culinary tourism promotion.”

A “Tourism Promotion Agency” is defined as:

  • An incorporated nonprofit organization or governmental units responsible for the tourism promotion of a destination on a year-round basis
  • A nonprofit entity that manages tourism-related economic development programs and projects
  • A regional or statewide association that represents entities that rely on tourism-related business for more than 50% of their total income
