DOC Announces 2001 MDCP Grant Award Competition Details

Today, the U.S. Department of Commerce released the schedule for this year's Market Development Cooperator Program (MDCP) grant award competition. This year, the applications will be due on July 1, 2002. For further information on the schedule or for an application, please go to the MDCP website at:

http://www.ita.doc.gov/td/mdcp/

An MDCP kick-off meeting is planned for May 20 at 10:00 am in Washington D.C. to discuss the program and application preparation. Your participation is highly recommended. For more information on this meeting please refer to the MDCP website.

The tourism industry has benefited by more than a million dollars from these grants in the past. In 1998, Travel South USA was an award recipient, and in 1999 the Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau was awarded a grant from the MDCP.

The Office of Travel and Tourism Industries would like to encourage travel and tourism organizations to apply for this year's awards as well. OTTI will keep you posted on any new developments in the MDCP program.
