Fernley Convention & Tourism Authority

FCTA Accepting Grant Applications May 2018

The Fernley Convention and Tourism Authority is pleased to announce the opening of the first grant cycle for fiscal year 2018/19 on May 1, 2018.

One of the goals of the FCTA is to grant requests for funds generated by the Transient Lodging Tax to organizations for use in any of the following areas:
Advertise available accommodations, hotels, motels, restaurants, etc., within the City of Fernley.
Advertise available transportation, bus, air, etc.
Advertise natural resources and climate.
Advertise special events.
Advertise the resources of the City of Fernley.
Reimbursements of budgeted expenses for special events, which have been approved by the board.

The FCTA is looking for projects, events, and/or activities that are consistent with the FTCA’s goals and objectives. Grant funds are intended exclusively to develop, promote, and improve tourism to and within the City of Fernley. Funds may be used for no other purpose. Projects should identify a specific target market, and offer a specific strategy for reaching this market.

To be eligible for reimbursement, all expenditures must occur during the grant period July 1 - December 31, 2018. For example, advertising such as radio, newspaper, etc. must actually be performed within the dates of the grant cycle, not just contracted. The actual date of the event does not have to be in the grant period, just the dates of the actual advertising for the event.

The FCTA Board will review and make grant selection on June 14, 2018 meeting 5:00 p.m.  Grant applicants will be notified when the agenda is available for review. Attendance at the meeting is strongly encouraged. Applications without representation at the Board's Funding Review/Allocation meeting will not be considered for funding.
