Over $14.2 million dollars has been awarded to 30 tourism partners through the state’s EDA Tourism Partner Sub-Awards Grant Program.
The Cortland County Convention & Visitors Bureau has received $250,000 from the program. The funding was made available through the Federal American Rescue Plan Grant.
“With our breathtaking views and landscapes, vibrant arts and culture, thriving business community and more, New York is proud to welcome visitors from all over the world to experience what our state has to offer,” Governor Hochul said.
For the CC Convention & Visitors Bureau, the grant will be used towards developing a targeted sports tourism marketing campaign under the “Experience Cortland” to impact the youth, amateur, and recreational sporting market.
“The program’s goal is to positively impact New York State’s tourism industry by making strategic investments in programs and organizations that are working to generate economic growth for New York State and its vacation regions.”
