Rural Marketing Grants

Rural Marketing Grants help Nevada communities market their destination to potential visitors in an effort to generate overnight stays. Travel Nevada awards $1.5 million each year to rural partners for a variety of marketing projects including paid advertising, promotion of signature events, travel trade and consumer shows, tourism community assessments and production of video and image assets. Tourism related non-profit organizations are eligible to apply for funding in this program.
