Greater Burlington Sports Commission Accepting FY20 Grant Applications

April 25, 2019

Greater Burlington Sports Commission FY20 Grant Application


The Iowa Tourism Office, a division of the Iowa Economic Development Authority, is offering a sports grant program designed to attract sporting events to the state. The Iowa Tourism Office will award $50,000 to ten Iowa Sports Commissions. The Greater Burlington Sports Commission is currently accepting applications from tourism sporting event partners to apply for the state grant.

The Greater Burlington Sports Commission will partner with local organizations, which coordinate sporting events, to submit an application for the grant. If awarded, the Regional Sports Authority District grant would provide $50,000 of state funds to the events included on the application, while an additional $25,000 would be matched through a contribution from each selected grant partner.

The Greater Burlington Sports Commission will meet and review all completed applications. The Sports Commission will then select applicants to include in the application to be submitted to the Iowa Tourism Office. If your application is selected as an award winner, then each sporting event partner will enter into a contract for the state grant funds. Announcement of award from the Iowa Economic Development Authority will commence by late September.
