The Lennox & Addington Economic Development Office is offering a new funding opportunity for L&A tourism-related businesses and event organizers. $20,000 in funding is available for event creation, event enhancement or new/enhanced tourism product development. Funding will be split evenly between tourism businesses and event organizers in each of Lennox and Addington’s four partner municipalities: Township of Addington Highlands, Town of Greater Napanee, Loyalist Township and the Township of Stone Mills.
Potential new events could include music concerts, sporting events or other unique offerings. Examples of event enhancements include incorporating live music (or larger acts), local food or other exciting additions that will draw visitors from further afield. New tourism products include developing activities with untapped potential. Examples in include new attractions (i.e. stargazing tourism), themed tours (i.e. haunted walks), or business collaborations that add to the visitor experience (i.e. butter tart trail). The possibilities are endless.
Applications may be for any amount from $500 up to $2,500. The deadline for applications is 4 pm on Thursday, May 2, 2019. Projects must be completed by December 31, 2019. More details and the application form is available at www.NaturallyLA.ca.
