Gulf Coast Marketing Assistance Program

The Marketing Assistance Program is a matching grant program that is designed to stimulate well-defined tourism-oriented events or projects, by offering an up-to 50% match for applicable advertising efforts, to potential visitors outside of the six-county area (Harrison, Hancock, Jackson, Stone, George, and Pearl River counties).

These funds are to assist qualified organizations with advertising of their event/project, striving to directly increase visitor spending, overnight stays, revenue, and jobs.  The program is intended to help ensure success and encourage growth toward self-sufficiency. Visit Mississippi Gulf Coast reserves the right to decide on a per-application basis on which and to what degree they provide assistance.
