Welcome to the North Platte/Lincoln County Visitors Bureau website page dedicated to the Lincoln County Tourism industry!
The North Platte / Lincoln County Visitors Bureau offers several grant programs throughout the year to help organizations and attractions develop and promote their tourism offerings. Promotion and Incentive Fund grants are heard on a monthly basis.
The deadline for application submission is the first day of the month at least 60 days prior to the event. Applicants must be present at the Advisory Committee meeting to present their project to the committee. Promotion funds must be used to promote events or attractions. Incentive funds can be used to help defray the cost of hosting an event.
Application forms are available by calling the Visitors Bureau at 308-532-4729 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Improvement Fund grant cycle begins each year with an “intent to apply” letter outlining the project and estimated cost that is due on the first business day of July each year. Visitors Bureau staff will then review the letters and schedule a meeting with applicants. Full applications are due on the last business day of September and are considered at the Advisory Committee meeting in October. Improvement Funds must be used to make brick-and-mortar investments in new or expanding visitor services within Lincoln County. For more information, contact the Visitors Bureau at 308-532-4729. Application forms are available by calling the Visitors Bureau at 308-532-4729 or by emailing email@example.com. Please note, organizations that do not submit “intent to apply” letters will not be allowed to submit an application.
