GEORGIA TOURISM AND GEORGIA COUNCIL FOR THE ARTS COMBINE RESOURCES TO FUND MORE PROJECTS

...News

ATLANTA, November 18, 2011 - The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) has awarded $200,000 in product development grants to 23 tourism entities across the state. Georgia Tourism and the Georgia Council for the Arts, both divisions of the Georgia Department of Economic Development, combined resources to maximize the reach of the 2012 Tourism Product Development grants.   “As a result of the partnership between Georgia Tourism and the Georgia Council for the Arts, the impact of these grants is far greater,” said Gov. Nathan Deal. “The enthusiastic response to these grants gives merit to the fact that the arts and tourism go hand in hand, and when they work together, provide benefits that support the economic vitality of the entire state.”   The Tourism Product Development grant program was designed to financially support tourism development activities at the local level that sustain and create jobs, and support Georgia’s creative economies with an emphasis on local artists and the nonprofit arts industry. The Georgia Department of Economic Development received 82 applications for the 2012 Tourism Product Development grant program – an increase of more than 50 from last year – amounting to more than $1.2 million in requests.
