The Dodge City Convention and Visitors Bureau is pleased to announce that an attraction and event print grant for printing promotional materials was approved at the February advisory board meeting. Main Street Dodge City applied for assistance in printing a rack card to promote downtown businesses. The printed piece will be distributed regionally to bring visitors to town by raising awareness of what there is to see and do at Dodge City’s downtown. A grant of $500 was approved for this project. Other grant recipients have included the Kansas Teachers Hall of Fame, The Carnegie Center for the Arts, and The National Barrel Horse Association. The grant is a reimbursable grant, and requires a proof of the final project before the grant is awarded. It will cover 50% of the artwork, printing cost, and other expenses, up to $500 per project. Some timeline limitations apply, and all applicants are required to use the “Get the Heck into Dodge” logo on the material and provide the completed printed piece to the visitors center in Dodge City, as well as other travel information centers throughout Kansas. "The CVB wants to aid our attractions and event coordinators in getting the word out to tourists, and to aid in bringing overnight travel to Dodge City," said Jan Stevens, director of the CVB.
