Grants to Georgia nonprofit organizations and government agencies for projects and events to foster tourism in eligible regions. Funding may be used for the product development, promotion, and marketing of festivals, special events, and attractions that will result in increased visitation to Augusta.

The Tourism Grant Committee voted that 2021 Tourism Grant funds be allocated towards co-op marketing programming and product development projects that support Destination Blueprint recommendations, rather than individual marketing awards. Historically, co-op marketing has leveraged grant funds to highlight individual grant recipients together in publications and media with excellent exposure that would be financially out of reach for an individual recipient to purchase without grant funds. Due to the extraordinary circumstances, the Committee has also made an exception for co-op marketing funds to be spent 70% out-of-market and 30% in-market to target both locals and travelers passing through the destination.

The purpose of this grant program is to provide funds for marketing, product development, and other qualified expenses directed towards increasing the number of overnight visitors to Augusta from outside of the area.

Projects which target and support Augusta area tourism drivers, the Augusta CVB’s strategic priorities and audiences will be given special consideration.
