Special Event Cooperative Grant ProgramNovember 26, 2018
Each year, Wasatch County generously provides grant monies to increase tourism awareness and overnight stays in the Heber Valley. Through an appointed advisory board, grant monies are allocated to event organizers based on merit, need, and the potential of attracting a significant number of overnight visitors to the area. See the original story or apply at gohebervalley.com.
Grant recipients are to use the special event marketing co-op funds exclusively outside of Wasatch County in the form of marketing, advertising, and promoting their events. Any promotional item that is created using grant money should include the official Heber Valley Tourism logo.
