Travel Oregon recently launched the Destination Ready program to provide funding and assistance to destination-based organizations to develop and bolster visitor experiences that follow appropriate public health and safety protocols, and that will aid economic recovery, enhance local livability and provide access to a diversity of explorers. Project awards can range from $10,000 – $50,000 in cash and consulting time per project category; all projects are expected to be completed within six months of the execution of a financial agreement. This $250,000 direct investment program is part of a larger suite of investments Travel Oregon will be deploying in 2021. It is separate from the Travel Oregon Competitive Grants Program and the Regional Cooperative Tourism Program as it does not require a cash match, is limited to certain eligible projects, and includes contracted program and technical support in addition to direct funding.
During this hour Travel Oregon’s Destination Development team presents the program overview, details and intended outcomes.
Organizations and individuals that are interested in applying to the program are encouraged to register for this information session.
