Grants to Massachusetts municipal departments, businesses, individuals, and nonprofit organizations in eligible areas for events that promote tourism. Grant funds may be used for program expenses, town fees, or marketing. Funding is intended to strengthen community character and to promote the Town of Yarmouth as a tourist destination.

The tourism grant is a reimbursement program to help offset the expenditures associated with special events and programs. Funding is intended to encourage the establishment of new events or the expansion of existing events that help to sustain Yarmouth’s tourism industry and promote the community as a desirable place to live, work, and visit.

The Town established the Special Event Grant program to increase the number of day and overnight visitors by encouraging sustainable year-round events to be enjoyed by the Yarmouth community. The Special Event Grant program is intended to promote and enhance tourism with an emphasis on encouraging events during the off- or shoulder-seasons.
