The Delta County Tourism Cabinet has been awarded $25,000 through the Colorado Tourism Office's marketing matching grant program.
Twenty-eight Colorado not-for-profit associations and governmental organizations from across the state were awarded grants ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 for the purpose of enhancing marketing efforts to attract visitors.
"We made it a top priority to maintain funding to support local and regional marketing initiatives," said CTO Director Cathy Ritter. "This is one of the most significant and direct ways that our state supports tourism groups and destinations in attracting travelers."
The annual competitive grant program received over 50 applications for a total of over $1.1 million in requests. Nearly 35 Colorado counties will share in the tourism grants.
The Delta County Tourism Cabinet intends to create an integrated social media plan which focuses on content creation, user generated photography and sharing the Delta County brand across a variety of digital platforms.
