Funding Purpose & Overview

The goal of Rockland County Tourism Grant Program is to provide funding to promote local events and attractions outside of the county and increase visitor spending. Tourism provides a direct economic benefit to the area and creates the most impact when visitors travel 50 or more miles away and/or stay overnight. Projects should include, but are not limited to, those that enhance Rockland's cultural, arts, historical, nature-based attractions, etc.  The program strongly encourages collaboration with other organizations to maximize the impact resulting from economies of scale. Requests demonstrating collaboration will be favorably considered. For-profit companies must partner with a non-profit to be eligible for funding.
