Winfield Convention & Tourism Committee
Application for Funding
The goal of the Winfield Convention and Tourism Committee is to fund events that bring people to town and increase tourism, benefiting local business. Applications are evaluated on these criteria:
- Does the event fit the goal of increased tourism and benefit business?
- What will be the economic impact of the event on the community?
- Does the event positively promote the community?
- Does the event make good use of resources granted?
Funding requests for 2024 events and programs are due by September 30, 2023. “Sudden Opportunity” requests for amounts of $500 or less may be made at any time throughout the year. However, Convention & Tourism cannot guarantee that funds will be available outside of the normal grant application process and encourages all annual events to submit their application during this time. All applicants must fill out a request in order to be considered. Grants will be limited to one request per group per year. Grants are typically awarded for marketing purposes.
It is the hope of the committee that after an event has been in operation for three years that it is sustainable and no longer in need of funding from C&T (or only minimal funding). If an event is non-profit, more consideration will be given after the three-year time period.
