Grant program awards up to $1,000 to boost local tourism

Tourism partners in Noble County are invited to consider applying to the Visit Noble County Tourism Grant program to help boost tourism in Noble County.

This grant funding opportunity is simple. Nonprofit organizations, individuals, festival committees, event centers, and other entities associated with efforts to increase tourism in Noble County, Indiana, may apply annually for a grant of up to $1,000.

An organization must be a 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), 501(c)(5), 501(c)(6) or 501 (c)(7) as determined by the Internal Revenue Service to apply for up to $1,000 in grant funding. For-profit companies are also eligible to apply, though they are restricted to receiving up to $500 twice each year ($1,000 max per calendar year) in sponsorship funds that may be used for marketing and branding purposes.
