Tourism Mini Grant Opportunity for Local Organizations & Businesses

The Oil Region Alliance (ORA) is offering mini grants for printing brochures and rack cards for tourism destinations in the Oil Region.

Both non-profits, such as museums, and for-profits, like shops and restaurants, can apply for half the cost of printing a brochure or rack card up to $500. Applicants are required to match the cost. Only one grant may be awarded per cycle, per location.

“This is an excellent opportunity for local tourism destinations to create a marketing piece to represent them in a variety of welcome centers and literature racks throughout the region,” said Emily Altomare, Communications and Tourism Manager of the ORA.

To apply, submit a final copy of the product to be printed (with the acknowledgment of funding support by the ORA specified in the rules), a copy of the quote or proposal for the printing cost, and a completed W-9 and application.

Rules and applications are available at the ORA office at 217 Elm Street in Oil City and online at Applications are due by Friday, March 13, in hard copy form to the ORA office or via e-mail to

The ORA will respond to applicants by Friday, March 20. The Oil Region Alliance must review and approve all materials before they are printed and reserves the right to not fund the grant if the final product does not adhere to the guidelines. Printing should be completed and stock should be delivered to the ORA office by Friday, May 1, for distribution throughout the Oil Region, which includes all of Venango County and sites in Titusville and Foxburg.
