Tourism Grants are made possible by an agreement between GO Laurel Highlands (GO LH)(Laurel Highlands Visitors Bureau) and the county of Westmoreland. The money available for these grants is made possible by the collection of a lodging tax within the lodging community. This unique program allows for the enhancement and growth of a vibrant tourism product within the Laurel Highlands region. Grants are never a promise, but an opportunity.
Visitor Center Grants are available only for operation of a visitor center in a Great Allegheny Passage Conservancy recognized “Great Allegheny Passage Trail Town” in Fayette County. This includes expenses related to staffing the center (payroll, payroll taxes, and payroll fees).
