MS Tourism Development Grant

The goal of the Tourism Development Grant is to assist with festivals and events that Visit Mississippi believes have the potential to grow substantially within three years. Priority will be given to new festivals and events that are in their early stages or growing and/or expanding.

All projects receiving a grant must adhere to the following guidelines. If any of these guidelines are not followed, a project will be deemed ineligible for consideration, and the Visit Mississippi director will withhold funding designated to the project. Application submissions will be limited to two per organization. Please note that this is a COMPETITIVE grant program.

Application and media breakout forms must be received by 3 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18, 2023.
