Matching grants deadline quickly approaching

Applications for a second round of matching grants are now available through the Cache Valley Visitors Bureau. Executive Director Julie Hollist said the deadline is coming up soon—Friday, April 11th. 

Hollist said her office does not have enough staff to present large-scale events that bring tourists into the area, so it tries to supplement and encourage others by providing some financial assistance.

“Organizations that put on any kind of event . . . it could be anything from the Cruise-In, Top of Utah Marathon, Celebrate America, Cowboy Rendezvous, Harvest Days at the American West Heritage Center . . . all those kinds of events that are drawing people in. We love to have applications from them and see what we can do to help support them,” Hollist explained.  

She said the money cannot be used for bricks and mortar or for salaries. Hollist said the preference is to give to events held from October 1st to May 15th, a slower time for hotels.
