The Nevada Division of Tourism manages these programs offering key opportunities for partners around the state:


Rural Marketing Grants

Rural Marketing Grants help the communities of Nevada market their destination to potential visitors around the world in an effort to generate overnight stays. Travel Nevada awards $1.4 million per 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. Non-profits and local tourism entities are eligible to apply for funding in this program.

3-D Destination Development

Destination Development is a long-range, tourism-based community planning program which enables Nevada’s rural communities to be intentional and strategic about growing their visitor economies. Communities that create a Destination Development plan will examine the intrinsic qualities of their destination and build an economic and marketing plan around those strengths.
