Grants to Washoe County, Nevada organizers for events to benefit the local community and boost local tourism. Events should seek to attract overnight visitors to the area, promote the funding source's branding image, and have a spectator component. Historically these special events have included, but are not limited to, festivals, fairs, community events, and certain sporting events.
The funding program is a marketing opportunity, providing financial resources that enable an event to broaden their advertising and promotional efforts (to potential out-of-market visitors) that would otherwise not be possible. Partnership Funding is not intended to supplement event production expenses or to augment net income.
An event’s use of RSCVA funding dollars in their advertising and promotional efforts must positively highlight the communities of Reno, Sparks, Incline Village/Crystal Bay, and Washoe County as an attractive place to live, work and play. Event messaging should support the RSCVA brand, not contradict it, and should never convey a negative parody of the destination, even if unintentional.
The RSCVA is funded by transient lodging taxes and tourism surcharges generated when paid lodging is utilized in Washoe County. Therefore, Partnership Funding is earmarked for events that occur in Washoe County and have a history of, or the potential for, attracting overnight visitors to Washoe County.
If an event occurs outside of Washoe County, it may be considered if the venue location is close to Washoe County and in an area without significant commercial lodging. The event must also promote Washoe County as the primary bed base and generate significant room nights in Washoe County.
GrantWatch ID#: 174820
