Virginia tourism programs receiving nearly $1 million in grants
From the WHSV, September 2016:
"Nearly a million dollars will be going to local tourism initiatives throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia as part of a grant program announced by Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
The grants are part of Virginia Tourism Corporation’s (VTC) Marketing Leverage Program (MLP) and are designed to help local and regional tourism entities attract more visitors by leveraging local marketing dollars, and they will ultimately impact at least 159 other statewide tourism entities."
