The Cuming County Visitors Bureau Promotion Grant Application has been updated and has been added to the Cuming County website under the visitor’s section.
The purpose of the Cuming County Visitors Bureau Promotion Grant Program is to provide funding that will promote the visitor attractions in Cuming County. The funds are available on a grant basis and provided from lodging tax revenue funds. Lodging tax funds are collected based on Nebraska Visitors Development Act Statute 81-3701 through 81-3724. These funds are strictly used for promotion of attractions or recreational facilities that will attract visitors to and within Cuming County that are owned by the public or nonprofit organization.
Eligible uses of the grant include: event advertising, brochure & website creation, brochure rack & display, and expenses related to the delivery of promotional material.
Ineligible uses of the grant include: general operating expenses, additional or current personnel salaries, or used in any manner that would violate the Nebraska Visitors Development Act, NE Statute 81-3701 through 81-3724 (as amended).
Since we have received so many applications in the last couple years, the Visitors Bureau Committee decided it was time to track the success of the events and will require organizations who apply to fill out a post event report that is also available on the website. Funds will not be released until the report is filled out.
Applications are reviewed during the CCVB Committee meetings held in January, April, July and October.
