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 grant funds (amount to be determined) during the current fiscal year to tourism partners who plan to bring new tourism dollars into the city economy.
Determine whether or not your proposed use of grant funds qualifies by reviewing the Texas Hotel Tax Expenditure Requirements. If your proposal qualifies:
Submit an inquiry letter (not required, but recommended)
The following three documents will again be available following the MCVB Board's approval of FY 2018-19 grant specifics.
