MCVB Tourism Grants

The McKinney Convention & Visitors Bureau is now offering grants to assist in funding initiatives, activities or events that promote the City of McKinney as a tourism destination.  The MCVB is funded via hotel taxes collected by the city, and will now be offering $20,000 during the current fiscal year to tourism partners wanting to bring new tourism dollars into the city economy.
