Published 9:43 am Saturday, January 28, 2023
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.
