Visit Loudoun’s Tourism Marketing Leverage Program is a matching funds program that extends the reach of the industry, attracts visitors, and increases visitor spending through partnerships and leveraged funds. A competitive application process enables Visit Loudoun to provide funding for those projects and programs that will have the greatest return on investment in terms of visitor spending. Applications are accepted and are reviewed by a volunteer committee of marketing and business professionals who are not directly related to the applicants. The Visit Loudoun Board of Directors votes on the committee’s recommendations to determine funding.
There is one major change to the Marketing Leverage Fund program this year. Beginning with the FY 2018 funding awards, this will be a reimbursement program, meaning no awarded funds will be paid out until after the completion of your project. At the completion of your project, you will be required to complete a final report and submit all eligible invoices/receipts that were paid for the project. Once the report and paid invoices/receipts are submitted, a reimbursement check (up to the awarded amount) will be processed and sent to the applicant.
