Marketing funds available for Franklin County tourism businesses

Saranac Lake Village Farmers Market courtesy Regional Office of Sustainable TourismFranklin County Economic Development Corp. (FCEDC), formerly the Franklin County Local Development Corporation, is the county’s economic development organization, and as of 2020, its destination management organization. Tourism is one of the region’s largest industries and we have set out to do tourism differently, by integrating it more fully into broader economic development efforts.

It is a priority to leverage occupancy tax revenues and the marketing efforts of tourism-related businesses to better promote our region as a destination.

One way we have to do that is through the Destination Cooperative Marketing Program (DCMP). The DCMP is designed to offer local tourism-related businesses financial support to undertake independently developed marketing efforts.

Information about this program, including guidelines, application form, and submission instructions is available here.

Please note the upcoming deadlines:

  • November 30, 2020 Large Campaign Category
  • January 30, 2021 Small Campaign Category
