The BOOST Microgrant Program was created to support and enhance tourism efforts within the City of Waynesboro. We believe that fiscal year 2023 will be a strong year for the tourism industry in Waynesboro, after more than two years of challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are looking for new, innovative, creative marketing efforts to encourage visitation to Waynesboro for unique events once again. Annual funding for BOOST is contingent upon annual appropriations from City Council.
The goal of the 2022-2023 BOOST Program is to support new marketing efforts for events aimed at attracting tourists from more than 50 miles away to Waynesboro. Financial awards up to $3,000 per organization may be used for marketing activities that promote one-time events or series of events in Waynesboro taking place between July 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023.
