Destination Development Grant Applications

Governor Doug Burgum, recognizing the importance of tourism development, recommended an appropriation for the Destination Development Grant Program. The 68th Legislative Assembly approved this program, which will now be administered through the Strategic Investment and Improvements Fund. The Department of Commerce will provide funding for the Tourism Destination Development Initiative Program in the form of program grants or grants for interest rate buydowns but may not award more than $5,000,000 for a project under this program for the 2023-2025 biennium.
