The City of Las Cruces is now accepting event funding applications for 2019/2020 events. The upcoming submission deadline is 11:59 p.m. Friday, August 30, 2019.
Sponsorships are available in three categories:
1. Tourism-Related Event: Eligibility determined on the potential of overnight visitors that can be expected to come to Las Cruces and stay in local hotels or RV parks.
2. Quality of Life Event should meet the following criteria:
a. Readily open and accessible to all or most Las Cruces residents
b. Provides a cultural, educational, or civic experience.
c. Measures its success both qualitatively and quantitatively.
3. Economic lmpact Event: Eligibility determined on the measurable economic impact that can be attributed to an event. The impact could be achieved by the higher tax revenue or real dollars saved.
Applicants may apply for funds for only one category during any funding cycle. Example: If an organization receives City sponsorship funds in a funding cycle for a Quality of Life project, the same event is not eligible to apply for an Economic Impact or Tourism sponsorship during the same period.
All applications must contain a marketing plan, budget and list of sponsors and other funding resources.
