MUSCATINE, Iowa– The Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GMCCI) has just announced two exciting grant opportunities through their tourism department, Visit Muscatine.

“The success from last year’s grants made the decision to do it again in 2022 very easy,” says GMCCI’s Director of Strategic Initiatives, Jodi Hansen: “Last year we helped fund eight events, seven of which were brand new for Muscatine. We are excited to help get new and innovative events in Muscatine and to help showcase existing ones. Our intent is to encourage events that will help bring visitors to Muscatine to increase local economic impact,” says Hansen.

GMCCI is seeking applications for the following opportunities:

Event Marketing Tourism Grant

GMCCI is offering grants up to $1,000 to be used to attract or promote an event, sporting competition, or attraction that will bring visitors to Muscatine, thereby increasing overnight stays in area hotels and/or tourism spending.

Community Grant

GMCCI is introducing grants up to $5,000 for event services companies and or organizations to produce 2022 events geared towards attracting visitors (minimum projected attendance is 1,000+ visitors). We are seeking events in the following areas: performing and visual arts events, food, wine, and beer festivals, cultural events, and recreational events.
