Share this article

Kansas Governor Laura Kelly last week announced a grant program to assist communities in developing or expanding tourism-related attractions to help boost local economy.

“Our tourism industry supports Kansas jobs, injects millions into our economy, and preserves our state’s unique history for future generations,” Gov. Kelly said. “These grants will enhance local community efforts to develop quality tourism assets that will grow the economy and improve the quality of life for all Kansans.”

The Tourism Attraction Sub-grants for Kansas (TASK) program is available through the Kansas Tourism Department. This program provides funding assistance for non-profit and public organizations to create or enhance tourist attractions. There is a total amount of $1.5 million in funding available.

TASK is paid for through the American Rescue Plan, U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) Travel, Tourism, and Outdoor Recreation state grants.

The projects to be supported by TASK could attract tourists to Kansas, including museums, sports facilities, sites of natural or cultural significance, significant permanent exhibits, unique or destination-type lodging, conference centers, trails, outdoor activities that spur visitation, destination retail, and others tied to the tourism industry.

The TASK grant application process began on January 14 and is due on March 11. Grant recipients are to be announced on May 2.
