Grants from the York County Tourism Grant Committee will help fund more than $50,000 worth of county-related promotion.

The committee approved grants for eight projects earlier this month. The recipients span industries, introducing new events and expanding established attractions, said Eric Menzer, president of the York Revolution and chairman of the York County Tourism Grant Committee.

"The grants for this round were capped at $10,000 each; however, there is no limit to the value these programs will add to our York County community," he said in a statement.

Among the recipients are:

Grants awarded to organizations for marketing purposes are meant to be used for promotion outside a 50-mile radius of York County, according to a press release.

Earlier this year, the committee awarded more than $530,000 that included the promotion of shows at the Capitol Theatre and Downtown Inc’s branding initiative. The application process first opened in December 2016 and since then, the grant committee has approved nearly $1.7 million in grant funding.

The next application round will open in early 2019 and cover large grants with no funding ceilings. Recipients will be awarded no later than June. To be eligible, all grant applicants must provide a 25 percent cash or in-kind match.

For questions about the application process, email Denise Restuccia, grant program manager at the York County Convention and Visitors Bureau, at denise@yorkpa.org or call 717-852-9675, ext. 113.
