FY2022 Recovery Grant Program
All funding has been fully awarded
The Explore Minnesota FY2022 Recovery Grant Program application process opened on September 15 funded with a one-time $750,000 appropriation from the Minnesota Legislature for tourism recovery projects. All applications were reviewed for eligibility according to the guidelines and in the order they were received. Pursuant to the legislative language, this program specifically supports needs in the areas of general tourism marketing, meetings and conventions sales and support, and marketing and operations of returning and new events.
The program fully funded 49 applications, with one request partially funded to equal the program limit. An additional 23 applications were received after the program limit was met and did not receive grant funding. All funding was exhausted within 8 hours of the open application period.
A list of grantees and awards will be made available. A full report of the program will be made public after the program closes on June 30, 2022.
