The Tourism Enhancement Grant was developed by the Tennessee Department of Economic & Community Development to provide tourism infrastructure resources to enhance and improve the tourism economic impact in Tennessee counties. TDTD will manage the grant in partnership with TNECD for FY 2019.
In an effort to provide more resources to potentially more areas, the departments are evaluating the criteria of the grant.
As a part of the evaluation, tourism partners and municipalities will be sent a survey regarding land ownership, legal structure, potential projects and more. These responses will be important in determining the best way to provide resources in the next round. Round 4 is scheduled to open early spring.
