In alignment with our mission to promote the Eastern Oregon visitor experience and to enhance and preserve the region's quality of life and economy, the grant program's key initiatives are to:

  • Drive visitation and overnight stays from Eastern Oregon's key domestic and international markets.
  • Develop destination-based products that are in concert with Eastern Oregon's natural environment, support the stewardship of the state's resources and its rich history 
  • Tie into or enhance one of EOVA's marketing and development pillars: Outdoor, Cultural & Heritage, Agritourism.
  • Provide strategic industry professional development and training opportunities 
In preparation of the 2023 Grant Cycle, you can review the 2021-2022 EO REGIONAL GRANT GUIDELINES for an idea of program intent, eligibility, developing a strong application, and application process.
