Grants to Kentucky nonprofits to market events that will attract tourists to the City of Louisville and/or Jefferson County. Funding can be used for studies, events, festivals, or media assistance. The project must attract out of town visitors and support overnight stays in hotels.

Grant monies are to be used for start-up funds for projects less than three years old in Louisville/Jefferson County, KY, unless the existing project changes in some significant way or wants to try new advertising/promotion activities to reach a new market, thus attracting overnight stays.

The funds are to be strictly used for out of market advertising and promotions which would be 50 miles or greater from Louisville/Jefferson County, KY. Projects with a proven track record in other markets will be given strong consideration and are strongly encouraged to bring their event to Louisville/Jefferson County, KY.

The Community Investment Committee (CIC) will not review or approve any multi-year funding requests.

You must be a non-profit organization to apply for a LCVB Community Investment Grant.
