The deadline for groups to request a share of up to $50,000 in funding is Friday, April 30. Participating groups and events must be located in Otsego County to qualify.
Sponsors must explain their event in detail and tell the Board of Representative’s Intergovernmental Affairs Committee how the event will draw visitors to the area. If it is new event, the application must describe the market segment the sponsors are trying to attract.
All advertising and promotional materials created for the events must state that they are paid for in part by a grant from Otsego County Government. Brochures and information regarding other Otsego County venues and events must be made available at events.
