Seneca County Tourism Council announces new grant program




Tiffin, Ohio — The Seneca County Tourism Council in partnership with Destination Seneca County has announced a new grant program that looks to enhance the tourism environment in the community.

The Seneca County Grant Assistance Program (GAP), sponsored by tourism dollars through Destination Seneca County, aims to assist organizations with advertising and promotion of activities, create positive image building publicity for the Seneca County area, and enhance the tourism environment of the area.

The Seneca Council Tourism Council was formed in early 2021 and provides full transparency to tourism partners on how Destination Seneca County utilizes bed tax dollars to promote destinations and Seneca County.

The main goal of this group is to collaborate to maximize the impact of tourism dollars. The council meets quarterly and is made up of representatives of destinations and partners in Seneca County.

“The council is pleased with the progress that has been made in promoting Seneca County as a destination and we feel as this program will support many of our partners who help make our community the best place to live, work, play and visit,” said Michael Strong, Executive Director of The Ritz Theatre and Chair of the Seneca County Tourism Council.

The Seneca County Tourism Council has allocated $5,000 to be used for the remainder of the 2021 calendar year. Grants are available for a minimum of $250 and up to $2,500.

Those eligible to apply include any not-for-profit group or organization doing business in the Seneca County area. Such parties may apply for the GAP program online at
