The Virginia Tourism Corporation’s (VTC) Recovery Marketing Leverage Program (RMLP) has awarded $20,000 to York County Tourism Development. The RMLP is designed to help local and regional tourism entities attract more visitors by leveraging limited local marketing dollars through a local match of the state grants funds. York County Tourism Development will use the grant funds to increase awareness and visitation to our destination through cooperative advertising programs with the VTC, including online digital and social media marketing campaigns. The COVID-19 impact on tourism has been significant. VTS offered these grant funds to spur economic activity and future travel across Virginia. York County Tourism appreciates being awarded these funds and will continue to promote year round visitation to the region.
