Alexandria Marketing Fund Announces Next FY 2017 Application Deadlines

For Immediate Release: December 16, 2016

Applications are now being accepted for the Alexandria Marketing Fund, a grant program that provides seed money in the form of matching funds for new and innovative marketing programs that promote Alexandria as a destination for visiting, shopping and dining, and doing business. The program also provides grants for the expansion of ongoing or pre-existing programs.

Applicants must review the Marketing Fund website and online application form before applying for funding. The next application deadlines are as follows:

  • Fiscal Year 2017, Round 2: January 13, 2017
  • Fiscal Year 2017, Round 3: May 1, 2017

The Fund is designed to promote economic development by fostering public/private partnerships and marketing programs that will become financially self-sustaining over time.

City Council appropriates monies for the Fund on an annual basis, and the Marketing Fund Committee reviews and approves applications for grants. Applicants receive additional guidance from the Marketing Coordinating Council, which provides preliminary application review and feedback to applicants and to the Committee.
