The Application Process

JCTC is in charge of reviewing the applications and voting upon which ones will be beneficial to increasing tourism within the community. A representative from the organization should be there to answer any questions that the commission may have.

If approved for the funding, then the organization will receive the money for the event, initiative, or program the following month.

After the completion of the event, initiative, or program, a representative will need to submit a report for the tourism commission to review.
