Fernley Convention & Tourism Authority Board

February 8, 2021 - The Fernley Convention and Tourism Authority (FCTA) Board convened to update the FCTA Grant Guidelines, By-laws, and FCTA municipal code.

Updated FCTA Grant Guidelines

The FCTA Grant Guidelines were adopted by City Council March 17, 2010 by Resolution #10-008. The guidelines were modified by Council July 20, 2011 by Resolution #11-008. Resolution #11-008 allows staff to revise the grant application, underwriting agreement, evaluation form, and request for reimbursement forms without City Council approval.

On February 8, 2021, the FCTA Board met to revise the Grant Guidelines. The Grant Guidelines were revised to clarify the purpose and goal of the grant, outline the grant provisions, and clearly to establish matching funds requirement for for-profit organizations. The revised Grant Guidelines go into effect for project and events in FY2021-22. Click here to view the revised FCTA Grant Guidelines.
