Press Release

The Carbon County Office of Tourism is now accepting applications for its 2022 Co Op Marketing Grant.

The main goal of this funding is to increase revenues in both Transient Room and Restaurant Taxes.

This program is overseen by the Carbon County Office of Tourism. Positive recommendations are given by the Carbon County Tax Advisory Board with final approval by the Carbon County Commission. Qualified applicants must be located in Carbon County, Utah and be one of the following:

  • City
  • Town
  • Community
  • Business Group

  • Tourism Enhancement projects inside Carbon County, including “brick and mortar” or infrastructure projects, that enhance tourism in the area.

Criteria for Application Funding Review:

  • New events will be given priority over established events. An established event is one which is 3+ years old. The only exception are those events which are defined as “pay to play” in which the event sponsor must pay a fee in order to host the event in Carbon County. Nonprofit organizations will be given priority over for-profit organizations.
  • Events that are of greater duration are considered more attractive due to overnight stays, restaurant services and other purchases that drive sales tax dollars.
  • Events attracting people to the area are of high consideration.
