Visit Bucks County, in partnership with the County of Bucks, annually accepts grant applications for the Bucks County Tourism Grant Program. Beginning in 2008 and funded through a percentage of the county’s tax on lodging, the program aims to increase visitation from outside Bucks County, resulting in economic impact and supporting jobs.

As its website states: “In accordance with Act 18 of 2016, the Bucks County Tourism Grant Program provides grants for projects for tourism marketing, promotion, product development, enhancement of attractions, special events, exhibits and festivals that drive overnight travel to Bucks County, strengthen the vitality of the Bucks County tourism and hospitality community, result in increased economic activity, and do not compete with private sector tourism.

            “Visit Bucks County (VBC) is the administrator of the program and oversees the documentation process in compliance with the program guidelines. Awards are established on the basis of merit as determined by the Bucks County Tourism Grant Committee.”

            The 2022 NPPTC would certainly not have been the large, successful event it was without the generous grant from the Bucks County Tourism Grant Program.
