TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE CO-OP PROGRAM LAUNCHES
WYOMING OFFICE OF TOURISM (WOT) TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE CO-OP PROGRAM
UPDATE: The funds in the WOT Technical Assistance Co-op Program have been expended for this fiscal year.
Information regarding the 2016/2017 Technical Assistance Co-op Program will be available later this summer.
The Wyoming Office of Tourism (WOT) launched the new Technical Assistance Co-op Program which has been designed to support and facilitate projects that contribute to the development of the tourism industry statewide. The intent of the new Co-op program is to fund a larger variety of projects that directly support WOT's strategic areas of focus. (Examples include: visitor way-finding signage, marketing research initiatives to drive tourism development strategies, development of new local/regional collateral material, implementation of visitor service or customer service training and attendance at a new industry or consumer related tradeshow in a new market).
In the first year of funding, WOT will award up to $5,000 per project based on eligibility. This Co-op requires a 50% cash match on behalf of the applicant and will be awarded on a reimbursable basis.
Applications are accepted between August 7, 2015 - April 1, 2016 and funding is available on a first come, first served basis.
To Note- We are requiring that anyone who applies for the Co-op program consults with their local tourism authority regarding their project and, in turn, will be required to submit a letter of recommendation from them that shows their support of the project idea.
