The 2019 Tourism Capital Grants were voted on by the Tompkins County Legislature on May 7th. The Legislature voted to award $200,000 in grants for the 2019 cycle. The Tourism Capital Grants program is part of the Tompkins County Tourism Program, which is funded by the local hotel room occupancy tax. TCAD administers this program for the County, assisting applicants and managing the review process.
TCAD would like to thank everyone who applied this year. It was a very competitive round with a record high of 12 eligible applicants and 10 awards. We look forward to working with all the applicants in the future as their tourism venues continue to grow and thrive. Click here for a chart showing the 2019 Capital Grant Awards.
