Description

Visit Bucks County, in partnership with the County of Bucks, is accepting grant applications for the Bucks County Tourism Grant Program. Beginning in 2008 and funded through a percentage of the County’s tax on lodging, the program aims to increase visitation from outside Bucks County resulting in economic impact and supporting jobs.

In accordance with Act 18 of 2016, the Bucks County Tourism Grant Program provides grants for projects for tourism marketing, promotion, product development, enhancement of attractions, special events and festivals that drive overnight travel to Bucks County and do not compete with private sector tourism.

Visit Bucks County is the administrator of the program and oversees the documentation process in compliance with the program guidelines. Awards are established on the basis of merit as determined by the Bucks County Tourism Grant Committee.

Beginning in 2020, one grant recipient each cycle shall be recognized as the Charles H. Martin Grant Recipient, in recognition of Commissioner Martin’s commitment to the Bucks County Tourism Grant Program.

2022 Award Amounts: Award Minimum: $2,500 ; Award Maximum: $40,000
