MONTPELIER — The Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing plans to award $75,000 in dollar-for-dollar matching grants through the Market Vermont program to help Vermont-based organizations and businesses promote themselves outside of the state.
Applicants may seek up to $10,000 for their project.
The deadline for applications is Oct. 3, and the grant recipients will be announced on Oct. 21. Recipients will be chosen by the Vermont Travel and Recreation Council.
Any nonprofit or profit-seeking organization with proven visitor draw to Vermont which is legally established in Vermont may apply for a Market Vermont matching grant.
Individuals, as well as municipal, state and federal organizations, are ineligible.
