Lombard is seeking grant applications for local programs and events that support tourism. The application process opens Sept. 27, with a deadline of Dec. 10.
Lombard's Local Tourism Grant Program was developed by the village through the Community Promotion and Tourism Committee. It provides funding for clearly defined festivals, programs or conventions that attract overnight visitors to stay in Lombard hotels.
Groups applying for grants also are encouraged to purchase all goods and services used for the event from Lombard businesses.
First-time applicants must attend a grant-seekers workshop to receive assistance and guidance with their initial grant application. The proposed event or program must be in full compliance with federal, state and local COVID-19 precautions and requirements at the time of the event.
