The mission of the Clay County Travel & Tourism Committee is to promote Clay County as a point of destination in order to boost our economy. The Clay County Travel & Tourism Committee is made of individuals, approved by the Clay County Commissioners as per the Kansas statutes 122.16.101. The Clay County Travel & Tourism Committee is funded through bed-taxes, people who stay in Clay County motels.
It is the responsibility of each committee member to promote, inform, and serve as the local community contact to answer all questions regarding the Clay County Travel & Tourism activities and process for funding.
There are two grants available. Click the link below to download the application which best fits your needs.
EZ Grant: Funding up to $300.00 (no requirment of beds used)

EXAMPLE: If your event is September 28th, your application should be submitted two weeks before the first Tuesday in August.
If the application meets the grant requirements, the Clay County Travel & Tourism Committee will agree to recommend the grant to the Clay County Commissioners who meet each Monday. The Clay County Commissioners make the final approval/denial on all grants.
If awarded a grant, all receipts must be submitted to back up the amount awarded. Failure to turn in all receipts could result in having to returnd the funds.
