Rural Programs

Coming Soon: Destination Nevada Academy. Registration opens early 2023.

Applications are now closed for both Rural Marketing Grants and 3D Project Grants.

FY24 Rural Marketing Grants will open for applications in March of 2023.




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.
