Marketing Grants

The City of Cedar Falls and its Tourism & Visitors Bureau offers grant monies to be used to attract, develop, or market an event, meeting or convention, sporting competition or attraction, which will bring visitors to Cedar Falls thereby increasing overnight stays and/or tourism spending.  Applications can be submitted to the Cedar Falls Tourism and Visitors Bureau at any time throughout the year and funds will be awarded until they are depleted.  Applications MUST be received at least 90 days prior to your intended project.  Projects eligible to receive funding are limited to events, attractions and projects that will potentially create overnight tourism and/or encourage tourism-related economic activity in Cedar Falls. 

Examples of successful projects include:

  • design and/or production and mailing of brochures, postcards,  fliers, and posters
  • advertising design and placement in media outlets that reach outside of the county
  • web site development, bid fees, venue rental, travel show materials and booth fees, and travel expenses


Application Materials 

Documents are available here for your convenience in PDF and Microsoft Word formats.  If you have questions about eligible projects, please call the bureau at 319-268-4266.
