Community Tourism Support

Community Tourism Support

The purpose of the Visit Marshall Tourism Grant is to provide financial investment for tourism projects by assisting with new events, established events, sports tournaments, tourist attractions, as well as local associations that promote and bring tourism to town. By doing this, we hope to increase the economic impact of visitors, increase spending, hotel stays & day visits, generate media awareness, and enhance the quality of life for Marshall residents.

Each application/proposed project will be reviewed individually to determine its potential economic impact on local accommodations and restaurants by our Board of Directors on a monthly basis.

Grant funds available up to $1,000 per group.
