Apply for Our EXPERIENCES Book and Seed Funds Micro Grants

We are excited to share two opportunities for experiences producers in Ohio’s Winding Road region. Applications are now open for our “Experiences” Book (for Spring/Mid-Summer: April 1 – Mid-July) as well as our Seed Funds Micro Grants. Both opportunities have a deadline of January 31, 2020, so be sure to apply by then! Look below for more information, and links to the online applications.

EXPERIENCES Book:

The Winding Road EXPERIENCES Book is a twice-annual (spring/summer and fall) guidebook that highlights experience-based tours and products in The Winding Road region (Athens, Fairfield, Hocking, Meigs, Morgan, Muskingum, Perry, Vinton, and Washington counties). An experience tour/product is a unique, locally sourced, place-based interpretive program, guided tour, adventure, exhibit, purchasable piece of art or souvenir, interpretive site, dining experience, shopping experience, festival/event, class or instruction, etc.

Winding Road Seed Funds Micro Grants:

The Winding Road Network has funds available for the development and/or marketing of authentic experience products in The Winding Road region (Athens, Fairfield, Hocking, Meigs, Morgan, Muskingum, Perry, Vinton, and Washington counties). Requests up to $750 will be accepted, however we anticipate that most awards will range from $250 – $500 to allow for more participation in the process. Applicants can be businesses, non-profit organizations, individual interpretive guides, and individual producers. Project funds will be used to pay or reimburse valid invoices, rather than provide a lump sum cash award. Exceptions can be made based on circumstances.
