BATON ROUGE — The deadline is approaching for the Louisiana Office of Tourism’s Attraction Support Grant Phase 2. The application deadline is March 9, 2023.

The $16.8 billion in domestic and international visitor spending in Louisiana during 2021 was a 26% increase over 2020, but still a decline of $2.9 billion over 2019, evidence that the Louisiana tourism industry has not yet  fully recovered from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A total of $500,000 is available for the LASG/Phase 2 Program to stimulate economic development throughout the state and will be awarded to eligible entities on a first‐come, first‐served basis. Applicants  that meet eligibility  criteria  can apply  for a maximum award  of $10,000, $2,000 of which will be allocated to the mandatory placement of the Official  Louisiana/Feed  Your  Soul/Louisiana  Travel.com  logo  on  the  home  page  of  the  attraction’s website.

To be eligible, an attraction must not have received an LASG Phase One grant.

Should grant  funds  be  exhausted  before  the  application  period  closes  on  March  9,  2023,  notification will be posted at LouisianaTravel.com/industry/attractions‐grant.
