Competitive Grants Program
Ten percent of Travel Oregon’s budget is dedicated to a competitive grants program to award eligible applicants for projects that contribute to the development and improvement of local economies and communities throughout Oregon by means of the enhancement, expansion and promotion of the visitor industry.
Projects should support Travel Oregon’s vision of ‘an Oregon that is a welcoming destination where tourism drives economic prosperity, benefits the natural environment and celebrates rich, diverse cultures.’
Over $3 million will be available in the next round of funding which will be open for applications from May 24-June 21, 2023. The award announcement will be Sept. 11, 2023. Projects must be completed by Dec. 1, 2024.
Grant Guidelines are currently under development and will be available online and shared through the industry newsletter in May 2023.
This round of funding will include both marketing and infrastructure as areas of focus, but additional priority areas are in development to align with tourism industry needs and Travel Oregon’s 2023-2025 strategic plan in support of the organization’s 10-year vision.
Though not finalized, the range of grant funding requests will be between $20,000-$150,000. Project requests of less than $20,000 will not be accepted.
Eligible applicants have yet to be determined.
