State Park Revitalization and Investment in Notable Tourism (SPRINT)

During the pandemic some sectors of the Kansas tourism industry experienced increased activity (ex: state parks) while other sectors experienced a decline in activity (ex: museums, performing arts centers, entertainment venues, etc.). While the pandemic highlighted opportunities to grow the tourism sector, investments are needed to revitalize the sector and ensure tourism attractions remain regional economic drivers. This funding opportunity seeks to address the pandemic’s impact and support the tourism industry by funding the development and/or improvement of tourism-focused businesses and tourism agencies. Tourism is a key sector for the Kansas economy and local communities.

The Kansas Department of Commerce is seeking applications from tourism-focused businesses and tourism agencies for impactful capital projects which spur regional economic development.
