Yazoo County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB)
Grants of up to $10,000 to Mississippi organizations and groups for projects and events to foster local tourism in eligible locations. Funding is intended to support advertising, repairs and improvements to tourist sites, and the placement of cultural or historical markers. Eligible programs should increase visitor traffic in Yazoo County.
The first type of assistance available is for Advertising & Promotion: This type of assistance targets markets outside of our immediate area (over a 100-mile radius or out-of-state). Your organization must purchase paid advertising (such as magazine, newspaper, radio and television ads and billboards); printed brochures and calendars of events; and put together public relations kits for your event. Entertainment, labor, t-shirts, and other clothing items are not eligible for consideration. Your organization will be reimbursed for the purchases once deemed all qualifications are met and proof of bills paid by your organization.
The second type of assistance available is for Historical/Cultural Enhancement: The primary purpose of this type of assistance is for the repair and /or improvement of tourism or tourism-related sites and for the placement of historical and/or cultural markers (such as Blues trail, Freedom trail markers, and other markers for historic preservation). This type of assistance is not for bricks and mortar projects. The Convention and Visitors Bureau will not provide this type of assistance for salaries or operating/administrative expenses. We will also give priority to projects for which the requesting organization is providing some of the funding necessary and/or has obtained additional funding from other sources. Proof of other funding sources may be requested by the Bureau, and may have to be presented before a decision is made.
