Program Announces 2022 Grant Recipients

BUCKS COUNTY, PA (December 15, 2022) – The Bucks County Tourism Grant Program distributed $596,867 to 51 organizations. The program was established between Visit Bucks County and the County of Bucks, in 2008, to assist in the development and enhancement of tourism initiatives in Bucks County. It is funded from a portion received from the Bucks County lodging tax assessed to visitors staying overnight in hotels, bed and breakfasts and home-shares.

Since the inception of the grant program, more than $6 million has been distributed to more than 120 organizations. Grant funding is used for marketing, special events and exhibitions, product development and capital improvement projects.

Each year, one grant recipient is recognized, in name, as the Charles H. Martin Grant in honor of former Commissioner Martin’s commitment in starting and supporting the Bucks County Tourism Grant Program. The 2022 recipient is the Bucks County Gilbert & Sullivan Society.
