Missouri River Country has cooperative marketing funds available for communities in northeast Montana, designed to promote an area or event on a cooperative basis with a nonprofit tourism-related organization.
The intent of this program is to encourage the development of new or expanded marketing projects outside the local community, thereby increasing the tourism travel to the region and extending the traveler’s stay in Missouri River Country.
The cooperative marketing funds are a 50/50 split between Missouri River Country and nonprofit tourism organization. The funds are made possible by bed tax dollars generated in the Missouri River Country tourism region and are offered annually by Missouri River Country through an application process.
Projects that Missouri River Country has helped fund in the past are brochures for different communities and museums, billboards, signage and advertising events.
For an application and guidelines, visit their website at www.missouririver.visitmt.com or contact the Missouri River Country tourism office, 800-653-1319 or write to PO Box 118, Fort Peck, MT 59223.
