ROSS COUNTY, Ohio — The Ross-Chillicothe Convention & Visitors Bureau is currently accepting applications for its annual Grant Assistance Program (GAP).
The purpose of the program, officials said, is to provide funding to organizations, events, and attractions in the Chillicothe and Ross County area to help promote upcoming events or programs. The goal of the program is to boost overnight stays in Ross County, improve the area’s image and increase the visibility of local attractions to generate awareness and tourism.
Both non-profit and for-profit organizations are eligible to apply, with a focus on increasing tourism. Funding can be used for marketing and advertising expenses, entertainment fees, and printing or distribution of brochures that reach beyond a 100-mile radius of the area. The deadline for applications is March 15th, 2023, and the Bureau has allocated $20,000 for the program. Organizations can obtain a copy of the application on the Bureau’s website or office. Completed applications can be submitted via email at [email protected], by mail, or dropped off in person at 230 N. Plaza Blvd during regular business hours.
