Spring 2023 Grant Cycle

Explore Newnan-Coweta, the destination marketing organization for Coweta County, is once again launching a reimbursement grant program to assist local partners in marketing tourism attractions, projects or events exhibiting positive tourism potential for the Coweta County area and attracting new overnight visitors. This year the grant will be broken up into a spring and fall phase in order to better assist partner who cannot plan a year in advance.

Partners can apply for up to $5,000 to make specific tourism marketing enhancements to a particular project or event, research potential product development or to generally promote, or enhance the promotion of, a tourism location.

The goal of these funds is to attract new visitors to Coweta County and therefore stimulate an increase in hotel/motel occupancy, expenditures by visitors to Coweta County, and to promote a positive image and increased visibility of the county’s assets. Applicants will be scored based on the Grant Rubric which you can find HERE.

An investment in tourism provides a trickle-down effect for the community: a stronger, more diverse economy, an influx of substantial revenue, increased sales tax collection, lower taxes and an improved quality of life for Coweta County residents who partake in restaurants and retail operations, cultural and recreational attractions, and entertainment options that are supported and sustained through visitor spending.
