The purpose of the BWCVB Grant Program is to assist their tourism partners in the promotion of tourism related businesses, attractions and events/festivals located within their 4 county (Carroll, Lee, Ogle, Whiteside) region.
The intent of the BWCVB Grant Program is to provide matching funds for projects that will promote the region as a tourism destination. Individual grant amounts will be awarded for up to half the cost of the specific project and will not exceed $500.00. The total amount of the Program will be determined on a yearly basis and approved by the BWCVB Board of Directors prior to grants being awarded.
There is no deadline to submit an application but funds will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis, until the grant budget is depleted.
