The Radcliffe-Fort Knox Tourism Commission received $29,788 in EDA Restoration Grant through the Kentucky Department of Tourism.
Kelly Barron, the commission’s chief executive, said the organization has used this to help with marketing and promotion.
They were among 103 tourism and marketing organizations in 88 Kentucky counties to receive a portion of the $5.3 million in funding.
Barron said projects that will use the funds include a new brochure, a Pandora radio ad, production of travel videos, banners and displays, and participation in a fall consumer travel show.
“We are very grateful for the grant,” she said. “Because these projects, combined with those already included in our promotional budget, will allow us to step up our efforts to increase traffic to the area.”
The money will boost marketing and promotion efforts after two years of hardship during the pandemic, she said.
The promotions also help those who live near the area discover what Radcliffe has to offer, Barron said, as rising gas prices make vacations more attractive.
“Radcliffe has a lot of fun things to do, and they’re all free,” she said. “From museums to walking and biking trails to the world’s largest pocketknife, there is something for everyone in our community, no matter their interests.”
