Utah Tourism board hands out grants for advertising

Ten organizations will split $208,906 in state financial assistance for tourism promotions, capping the first round of funding in which the Utah Board of Tourism Development allocated $1 million to help local groups spread their messages out-of-state.

The 10 were among 22 groups that applied for matching funds from the board’s cooperative funding program, part of a $10 million legislative appropriation designed to increase Utah’s visibility as a tourism destination to people beyond its borders.

A month ago, 22 other organizations were given $790,023 for similar promotional efforts. An additional $1 million in cooperative funds will be available sometime next spring for tourism campaigns that have a summer emphasis.
