BUCKS COUNTY, PA (June 1, 2020) – Visit Bucks County (VBC), the official tourism promotion agency for Bucks County distributed $210,500 to 38 Bucks County non-profits.

The Visit Bucks County Tourism Grant program was established more than ten years ago to assist in the development and enhancement of not-for-profit tourism initiatives in Bucks County. The program 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, Visit Bucks County has distributed more than $4.8 million to more than 100 organizations. Grant funding is used for advertising, new exhibits, increased signage, restorations, website redesigns, marketing collateral and more.

Beginning this cycle, one grant recipient will be recognized, in name, as the Charles H.
