The Village of Lombard is currently seeking grant applications for local programs and events that support tourism and promote the Village as a destination to nonresident visitors.
Interested first time applicants to the Local Tourism Grant Program are encouraged to submit an application for Local Tourism Grant funds to the Village by Dec. 19, 2016.
The Village of Lombard’s Local Tourism Grant Program was developed by the Village through the Community Promotion and Tourism Committee, and provides funding for local programs and events that encourage overnight, non-resident visitors to the Village of Lombard. Applicants must be organizations seeking to produce and promote a clearly defined festival, program or convention that attracts overnight visitor stays in Lombard hotels. The purpose of the grant program is to provide support for local tourism programs, attractions and events to enhance the marketing of the Village of Lombard to visitors.
The goal of the Local Tourism Grant program is to positively impact the vitality of Lombard by contributing to the local economy through increased hotel occupancy, visitor travel and local expenditures. Groups applying for grant funds are encouraged to purchase all goods and services used for the event from businesses located in Lombard.
“We look forward to offering assistance to potential grantees who seek funding for their projects, and hope to see new candidates come forward in this grant cycle," said Trustee Mike Fugiel, Chairman of the Community Promotion and Tourism Committee. The initial deadline for the 2016 Local Tourism Grant Program is Dec. 19. First time applicants must attend a grant-seekers workshop to receive assistance and guidance with their initial grant application. Applications and additional information about the program may be found at www.villageoflombard/localtourismgrant.
