The Morehead-Rowan County Tourism Commission (MRCT) designates a portion of its budget to a grant program designed to aid special events or projects that promote tourism activity in Morehead and Rowan County. The purpose of the grant program is to increase visitation, enhance the visitor experience and increase overnight stays in our area. The number and extent of sponsorships will be dependent upon the availability of funds. All funds dispersed from MRTC are strictly for marketing and advertising funding unless otherwise specified after review.
All funding requests must be submitted a minimum of two months prior to the event. All requests must be submitted with a cover letter, completed grant application to include a detailed description of the project, detailed funding breakdown, and a project timeline. If the submitted paperwork is not complete, submittals will be voided. Applicants will be notified of approval or denial upon the final decision.
